The Armed Republic of Narinoland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Latorre with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.581 billion Narineans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mussa. The average income tax rate is 51.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Narinean economy, worth 498 trillion Maccas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 108,767 Maccas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people, women wear burqas to avoid unwanted male attention, concussed goatball players cannot remember their lineup position, and the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent. Crime is totally unknown. Narinoland's national animal is the goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Narinoland is ranked 20,774th in the world and 594th in The East Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 232.84 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
