The Deceptively Spacious Land of Outer Nowhere is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 722 million Outer Nowhereans 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Remotopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Outer Nowherean economy, worth 90.6 trillion millicamels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 125,474 millicamels, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 361,301 per year while the poor average 34,611, a ratio of 10.4 to 1.

Parents tell their children 'what a lovely mistake you turned out to be', condemned prisoners spend hours a day sitting in lotus position looking perplexed, many friends and relatives of Leader have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Outer Nowhere's national animal is the camel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Outer Nowhere is ranked 37,500th in the world and 11th in Nowthappenin for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,148.49 Tourists Per Hour.
