The Quarantined Peoples of Nooooooooooooooo is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by John Edwards with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.92 billion Noons enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salabrachon. The average income tax rate is 86.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Noon economy, worth 553 trillion Angorejes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 93,492 Angorejes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tampons are used as cheap fishing bobbers, military parades quietly tiptoe their way through the streets, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, and the nation's youth would rather watch paint dry than the news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nooooooooooooooo's national animal is the Foster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nooooooooooooooo is ranked 139,275th in the world and 1,273rd in 10000 Islands for Most Pro-Market, scoring 33.56 on the Rand Index.
