The Sparkling Waters of Namakan is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.627 billion Namakanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kettle Falls. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Namakanian economy, worth 372 trillion Greenstones a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 141,696 Greenstones, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, bike rage is all the rage, more than one company makes the board game Monopoly, and at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Leader's wardrobe. Crime is totally unknown. Namakan's national animal is the Lake Trout, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Namakan is ranked 242,968th in the world and 1,033rd in 10000 Islands for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -27.64 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
