The Magocratic Republic of Nuridia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by High Wizard Taliesin Vladat with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 19.073 billion Nuridians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Durthar. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Nuridian economy, worth a remarkable 1,716 trillion perles a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 89,990 perles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Durthar to enjoy their national art, the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet, and knitting needles have been banned in the name of public safety. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nuridia's national animal is the Dracula Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nuridia is ranked 225,569th in the world and 8,366th in Balder for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -24.22 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
