The Eternal Pride Parade of Nookville is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its daily referendums, national health service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 577 million Nookvilleans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nooks Cranny. The average income tax rate is 76.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Nookvillean economy, worth 41.8 trillion bells a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 72,480 bells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, billions of bells are being poured into a space program, the government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority, and the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative. Crime is totally unknown. Nookville's national animal is the Narwhal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Nookville is ranked 55,319th in the world and 551st in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 72,480.52 Standard Monetary Units.
