The Empire of Nokelon is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Zavier Long with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.999 billion Nokelonians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anobar. The average income tax rate is 51.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Nokelonian economy, worth 249 trillion Nokelonian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 124,658 Nokelonian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
The police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, no one is quite sure what many government officials look like, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, and exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nokelon's national animal is the Giant Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
