The Grand Magocracy of Nuridia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Wizard Aristides Ashburn with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 13.255 billion Nuridians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 Thule. The average income tax rate is 73.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Nuridian economy, worth a remarkable 1,192 trillion perles a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 89,992 perles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, the nation is in perpetual campaign mode, sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Thule to enjoy their national art. 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 Pegasus, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nuridia is ranked 40,024th in the world and 357th in 10000 Islands for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 70.31 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
