The Holy Empire of Naam is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 632 million Naamians 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 medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Spirituality, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amritsar. The average income tax rate is 26.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Naamian economy, worth 50.8 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 80,350 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, many in Naam are born in the purple, the nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', and centuries-old legal documents detailing agnatic-cognatic gavelkind succession are being dusted off again. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Naam's national animal is the Paradisaeidae, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Naam is ranked 78,048th in the world and 3,087th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 62.36 on the Hayek Index.
