The Republic of Neirin is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 677 million Neirinians 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 large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 73.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Neirinian economy, worth 39.6 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is 58,430 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, the 'sing-a-long with Leader' album is a popular souvenir, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neirin's national animal is the ferret, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Neirin is ranked 6,336th in the world and 90th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.84 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
