The United Prefectures of Noronica is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by First Prefect Trystan Alexander with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, aversion to nipples, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, humorless population of 10.045 billion Noronnicans 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of Nolon. The average income tax rate is 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Noronnican economy, worth a remarkable 1,726 trillion Cainds a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 171,911 Cainds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, people faint regularly as they get stuck with compulsory vaccinations, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, and corporate 'hostile takeovers' now involve ICBMs and main battle tanks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Noronica's national animal is the Great White Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Presbyterian Protestantism.

Noronica is ranked 26,935th in the world and 32nd in The Western Isles for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,981.11 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
