The Irish My Pretitle Was Better of Nakarisaune is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.921 billion adorable mustelids 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Poppaea Maxima. The average income tax rate is 80.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Nakarisaunean economy, worth a remarkable 1,583 trillion hyenas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Book Publishing, Tourism, Information Technology, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 113,766 hyenas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Finding half a worm in your apple is an arrestable offense, the government is eagerly awaiting a multi-million hyena payment from a deposed Smalltopian monarch, skin-tone prom dresses are more unpopular than ever, and prison visits increase substantially during election years. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Nakarisaune's national animal is the aardvark, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nakarisaune is ranked 166,714th in the world and 7,558th in the South Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -18.87 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
