The  Wersons  of Nooooooooooooooo is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by John Edwards with an even hand, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.614 billion Noons enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salabrachon. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Noon economy, worth 913 trillion Angorejes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 120,004 Angorejes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, standing on a chair to reach a top shelf is seen as evidence of narcissistic personality disorder, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nooooooooooooooo's national animal is the cow bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nooooooooooooooo is ranked 4,591st in the world and 4th in Callista for Lowest Crime Rates, with 112.21 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
