The Socialist People's Fiefdom of Uncle Noel is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by General Secretary Hoogaboom with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, state-planned economy, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 25.337 billion Anahuacans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Itztlan. The average income tax rate is 93.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Uncle Noelian economy, worth a remarkable 2,725 trillion Shillings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 107,587 Shillings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ships no longer sail as no one wants to encounter Uncle Noelian pirates, people who tease dwarfs are being cut down to size, there's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days, and unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Uncle Noel's national animal is the Armadillo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is politely discouraged.

Uncle Noel is ranked 82,918th in the world and 15th in Western Atlantic for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,974.14 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
