The Confederacy of Nookington is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 275 million Nookingtonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nookington City. The average income tax rate is 52.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Nookingtonian economy, worth 17.5 trillion Bells a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 63,663 Bells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, politicians are battling inequality by declaring themselves better than everyone else, and children's bedrooms are often decorated with posters of successful accountants. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nookington's national animal is the Big bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nookington is ranked 64,084th in the world and 2,989th in the South Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50.99 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
