The Blue and Golden Federation of Nooooooooooooooo is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by John Edwards with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 3.973 billion Noons 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 Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salabrachon. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Noon economy, worth 307 trillion Angorejes a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,386 Angorejes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
The government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, grannies get pulled over for knitting pullovers while driving, and EULAs remind customers that "Private Mode" is a browser setting rather than a promise. 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.
