The Queendom of Noodle soup pie is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 190 million Noodle soup pieans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Environment, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Noodle soup piean economy, worth 4.10 trillion Blood cells a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Soda Sales industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 21,586 Blood cells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Five-hundred-twenty-five-thousand-six-hundred revivals is how theatre-goers measure a year, classes are regularly interrupted by drunken children, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, and meetings are often scheduled for "about four-ish" following complete conversion to sundials. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Noodle soup pie's national animal is the Jackolope, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Noodle soup pie is ranked 164,110th in the world and 105th in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -10.37 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
