The Community of Independent News Network is a huge, genial nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-working, democratic population of 270 million South Pacificans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 6.0%.

The strong South Pacifican economy, worth 15.6 trillion Drama Llamas a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 57,614 Drama Llamas, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Crime is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Independent News Network's national animal is the Llama, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Independent News Network is ranked 44,960th in the world and 1,854th in the South Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 27.87 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
