The Parlamentary Republic of Union of Nobelia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Grace Summer Austin Atkins with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.917 billion Nobelianos love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pueblos Nobelianos. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Nobeliano economy, worth a remarkable 1,789 trillion E-Kings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 258,713 E-Kings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, the army spends more time producing 'romantic videos' than actually training soldiers, dinner parties often end in politically charged fist fights, and international commentators accuse the nation of aggressive cultural imperialism. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Union of Nobelia's national animal is the Hummingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Union of Nobelia is ranked 4,387th in the world and 1st in Asterya for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 8,000.81 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
