The Kingdom of Noyistain is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Queen Esthero with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, triple-decker prams, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 800 million Noyistainians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Patriagellis. The average income tax rate is 52.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Noyistainian economy, worth 26.7 trillion Aurums a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 33,361 Aurums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Queen Esthero has just been declared ruler of Noyistain in an international press conference, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, the nation thirsts for new freedoms, and fur coats have become the latest fashion trend. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Noyistain's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Noyistain is ranked 138,495th in the world and 80th in Thegye for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,094.04 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
