The Grand Duchy of Nomaida is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Philosopher King with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.685 billion Nomaidans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Social Policy. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but sluggish Nomaidan economy, worth 858 trillion pound sterlings a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 88,680 pound sterlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nomaidan husbands are dead good at fathering kids, even God cannot save you in Nomaida, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", and doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nomaida's national animal is the Red Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nomaida is ranked 4,663rd in the world and 59th in Europe for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 21 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
