The Nomadic Peoples of Damanucus is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Passenly Barr-Dayg with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 24.968 billion Damanucans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Triolin. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Damanucan economy, worth a remarkable 4,204 trillion damanucan lire a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 168,393 damanucan lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, Passenly Barr-Dayg's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an 'Air Brancaland' flight has been offered asylum, and if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Damanucan satellites can detect it. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Damanucus's national animal is the chameleon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Damanucus is ranked 218,898th in the world and 169th in New Warsaw Pact for Rudest Citizens, with 4.25 Insults Per Minute.
