The Kingdom of Noire Denholm is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The All Powerful Monty Phugotuborn with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 6.058 billion Noire Denholmians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, 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 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Noire Denholmian economy, worth a remarkable 1,126 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 185,952 Skuls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The elderly live on a steady diet of canned beans in dreary government housing, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and conspiracy theorists allege that the government is spying on them through their carbon monoxide detectors. 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 205,046th in the world and 8,203rd in the South Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -23.49 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
