The Kingdom of Noire Denholm is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The All Powerful Monty Phugotuborn with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, devout population of 6.525 billion Noire Denholmians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gasselterboerveenschemond. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Noire Denholmian economy, worth a remarkable 1,205 trillion Skuls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 184,677 Skuls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is committed to nuclear rearmament, serial killers are the country's biggest import, people regularly disappear off the streets and all evidence of them is destroyed, and war vets look after war animals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Noire Denholm's national animal is the Great Mock Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Dark Cult of Bothughachau.

Noire Denholm is ranked 221,887th in the world and 8,437th in the South Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -20.57 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
