The Magocratic Republic of Nuridia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by High Wizard Taliesin Vladat with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and strictly enforced bedtime. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.599 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 Durthar. The average income tax rate is 74.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Nuridian economy, worth a remarkable 1,370 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 reasonably common. Average income is 87,851 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 131,924th in the world and 729th in 10000 Islands for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 63.96 Workforce Participation Rate.
