The People's Republic of Of NUGE is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Nuge with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, ubiquitous missile silos, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.083 billion NUGEians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nuge City. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient NUGEian economy, worth 484 trillion NUGE BUCKS 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, 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 an amazing 232,603 NUGE BUCKS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, international television adverts praise the nation as a worker's paradise, bread-gangs raid restaurant waste bins to stockpile uneaten rolls, and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Of NUGE's national animal is the BEAGLE, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Of NUGE is ranked 44,172nd in the world and 66th in New Western Empire for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,028.88 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
