The Kingdom of Nottinghaven is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Jalen II with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.344 billion Nottinghavians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Nottinghavian economy, worth a remarkable 1,791 trillion Nottings a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 173,187 Nottings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

King Jalen II can often be seen hanging around playgrounds chatting with the kids, hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region, costumed characters wearing Maxtopian Grass leaves remind citizens that the government now sells the green stuff, and King Jalen II has promised 'power to the puppies'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nottinghaven's national animal is the Notting Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nottinghaven is ranked 4,319th in the world and 18th in Refugia for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2,457.38 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
