The Republic of Lower Nubia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Bisharin with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 5.548 billion Lower Nubians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Napata. The average income tax rate is 78.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Lower Nubian economy, worth 960 trillion Nubian dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 173,041 Nubian dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, white strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, and rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lower Nubia's national animal is the Nubian Ibex, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Coptic Orthodoxy.

Lower Nubia is ranked 5,128th in the world and 6th in Africa for Most Developed, scoring 93.53 on the Human Development Index.
