The Windy Kingdom of Noxious Air is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by General Gas with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 33.369 billion Noxious Airians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Meth. The average income tax rate is 34.8%.

The all-consuming Noxious Airian economy, worth a remarkable 2,401 trillion quatlooms a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 71,968 quatlooms, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Chest pains are considered part of the dining experience in Noxious Airian restaurants, the government maintains a Department of Skulduggery, arthritic surgeons with tremulous fingers reassure patients that they are in safe hands, and the government's approval ratings go down while its turnover rate goes up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Noxious Air's national animal is the Wild Ass, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Noxious Air is ranked 215,229th in the world and 114th in South Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.57 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
