The Democratic States of NOEL53 is a huge, pleasant nation, notable for its burgeoning Waiban population. The hard-working population of 262 million NOEL53ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 22.6%.
The NOEL53ian economy, worth 10.5 trillion Waibans a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 40,018 Waibans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.
Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. NOEL53's national animal is the Waiban, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.
