Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Land of Noster is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Magnus Dux with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, state-planned economy, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 2.917 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 medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urbem Maximo. The average income tax rate is 56.0%.

The all-consuming Nosterian economy, worth 295 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 an impressive 101,132 Gratias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Patriotic citizens simply tend to applaud rather than sing the nation's praises, bike rage is all the rage, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, and belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace'. 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 44,815th in the world and 2,054th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.36 Weapons Per Person.
