The Deceptively Spacious Land of Outer Nowhere is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Oliver Reed with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.689 billion 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 prioritizes Education, although Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Remotopolis. The average income tax rate is 28.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Outer Nowherean economy, worth 274 trillion millicamels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 162,675 millicamels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

A government program is underway to revitalize Outer Nowhere's beaches, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, the government is coughing up funds for lung cancer victims, and government ministers are regularly seen in the streets confessing their sins and hammering missiles into plow-shares. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Outer Nowhere's national animal is the camel, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Scam.

Outer Nowhere is ranked 38,800th in the world and 21st in Nowthappenin for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,494.36 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
