The United Commonwealth of Negoshi is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its daily referendums and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 754 million Negoshians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gwangtaek. The average income tax rate is 31.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Negoshian economy, worth 62.3 trillion Negoshian Shils a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Cheese Exports, and Soda Sales. Average income is 82,643 Negoshian Shils, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Wildlife have trouble navigating the electric fences surrounding national forests, octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, and owners of man-portable particle accelerator backpacks are advised not to cross the streams. Crime is totally unknown. Negoshi's national animal is the Negoshian Reef Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Negoshi is ranked 2,978th in the world and 328th in the South Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 22,679 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
