The Commonwealth of Nookington is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President William Jones with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.475 billion Nookingtonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nookington City. The average income tax rate is 71.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Nookingtonian economy, worth 100.0 trillion Nookingtonian Bells a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 67,769 Nookingtonian Bells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's often raining men (hallelujah) in Nookington City, everyone suspects that everyone else is a terrorist, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and customer satisfaction with online delivery services is at an all time high. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nookington's national animal is the Pigeon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nookington is ranked 78,669th in the world and 2,629th in Balder for Highest Drug Use, scoring 78.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
