The Sunbathers of The Nude Beach is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Nude Sunbather with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.92 billion Nude Beachians 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 Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Bonfire. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Nude Beachian economy, worth a remarkable 4,289 trillion sand dollars 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 led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 239,345 sand dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, people with political aspirations study how to make balloon animals, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and sales of trenchcoats are on the rise. Crime is totally unknown. The Nude Beach's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Naturism.

The Nude Beach is ranked 220,595th in the world and 61st in Nudist Dreamland for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -1448.46 on the Hayek Index.
