The Matriarchy of Nuronte is a huge, genial nation, ruled by President Mariyna Winger with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, vat-grown people, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 954 million Nuronteans 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tarinyne. The average income tax rate is 82.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nurontean economy, worth 95.9 trillion Nrullers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 100,572 Nrullers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gossip magazines have pictures of President Mariyna Winger sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, lobster tastes best when it is red, and the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nuronte's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nuronte is ranked 101,828th in the world and 4,167th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 120,723 Standard Monetary Units.
