The Free Federal Republic of Nordhpadhan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bartolomeo Colleoni with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The democratic population of 10.435 billion Nordhpadhanians 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 relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wenedhig. The average income tax rate is 28.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nordhpadhanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,480 trillion Free Francs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,920 Free Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists are forbidden to enter Native Nordhpadhanian lands, the latest national park is visited by more sharks than people, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and families burn Bartolomeo Colleoni's latest official photograph to keep warm. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nordhpadhan's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Heathenism and Hellenism.

Nordhpadhan is ranked 90,951st in the world and 139th in Lands End for Most Patriotic, with 14.36 flags saluted per person per day.
