The Republic of Nolambur is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 3.39 billion Nolamburians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vivin Park. The average income tax rate is 87.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nolamburian economy, worth 329 trillion INRS a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,176 INRS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, attempts to inform people about their unclaimed property are often mistaken for telephone scams, hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, and citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nolambur's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nolambur is ranked 224,297th in the world and 8,443rd in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -218.53 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
