The Sparkling Waters of Namakan is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.577 billion Namakanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kettle Falls. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Namakanian economy, worth 959 trillion Greenstones a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 172,106 Greenstones, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, students at universities think exercise bikes are pieces of abstract art, most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, and unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave. Crime is totally unknown. Namakan's national animal is the Lake Trout, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Namakan is ranked 3,714th in the world and 56th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 20,387.68 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
