The Republic of Nofflen is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Severina Ravenscroft with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, otherworldly petting zoo, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 6.518 billion Nofflenians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt 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 17.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Nofflenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,380 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 amazing 211,799 coopieses, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Nofflen is building an army to protect its overseas territories, doctors who mutter "Oh my God" often lose their medical license, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, and teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries. Crime is totally unknown. Nofflen's national animal is the Owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Secular state.

Nofflen is ranked 41,702nd in the world and 1,463rd in Balder for Most Politically Free, scoring 75.9 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
