The Free Land of Noster is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Magnus Dux with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 3.65 billion Nosterians are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urbem Maximo. The average income tax rate is 62.7%.

The all-consuming Nosterian economy, worth 351 trillion Gratias a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is 96,438 Gratias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The World Free Land Games have been won again by Noster as no other country cares enough to compete, the government now pays the "Really Awesome Super Heroes" (RASH) to catch evildoers, high school career advisors advise belligerent loners to consider vigilantism, and photographers have to apply for a license to photograph Magnus Dux. Crime is totally unknown. Noster's national animal is the Snow Monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Noster is ranked 174,117th in the world and 9,644th in The North Pacific for Most Conservative, scoring 15.38 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
