The Republic of Noaping is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 599 million Noapingians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Honraoi. The average income tax rate is 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Noapingian economy, worth 43.1 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Pizza Delivery, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 71,978 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, and airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Noaping's national animal is the Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
