The People's Republic of Nubt II is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The cynical population of 502 million Kushite-Nubtians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Napata-New Cairo. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Kushite-Nubtian economy, worth 14.7 trillion Kushite-Nubtian Pounds 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 Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. 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 29,309 Kushite-Nubtian Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Nubt II, and mechanics are often exhausted by their work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nubt II's national animal is the Kushite-Nubtian Steppe Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nubt II is ranked 222,282nd in the world and 8,721st in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8.94 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
