The Grand Duchy of Nomaida is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Philosopher King with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.124 billion Nomaidans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 941 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 84,676 pound sterlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", and dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia. 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 152,866th in the world and 1,000th in Europe for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 58.73 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
