The Most Serene Republic of Numano is a large, cultured nation, remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 84 million Numanoans 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 Spirituality, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 70.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Numanoan economy, worth 4.13 trillion Numanis a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 49,155 Numanis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, autopsies often involve only cursory examination, citizens who use the word "Violet" incorrectly find their WhoTube content taken down, and the children of Numano are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Numano's national animal is the Eastern Numanoan Quail, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Numano is ranked 43,792nd in the world and 1,049th in the South Pacific for Most Patriotic, with 21.59 flags saluted per person per day.
