The Republic of Nofflen is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Rowena Greenfield with a fair hand, and renowned for its digital currency, frequent executions, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 4.833 billion Nofflenians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Richtown. The average income tax rate is 9.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Nofflenian economy, worth 953 trillion coopieses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 197,190 coopieses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians have to be granted day-release from prison to speak on bills, dentists routinely perform open heart surgery, foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies, and the nation is known abroad mostly for its Parliamentary antics. Crime is totally unknown. Nofflen's national animal is the Owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secular state.

Nofflen is ranked 13,770th in the world and 858th in Lazarus for Most Cultured, scoring 96 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
