The Free Land of Nottinhaps is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.412 billion Nottinhapsians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nowhere. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Nottinhapsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,647 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an amazing 213,300 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Nottinhaps Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, many believe that Leader rules by divine right, and disability advocates are not amused that they are told to be dependent on Nottinhapsians's kindness. Crime is totally unknown. Nottinhaps's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Nottinhaps is ranked 3,537th in the world and 70th in The Communist Bloc for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 5,256.59 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
