The Philipian Realm of Nogori is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Saint Phillip with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 6.76 billion Nogorians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nogoriberg. The average income tax rate is 49.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Nogorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,266 trillion Stronks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 187,301 Stronks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The well-to-do in The North Pacific are never on time for important appointments, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, women no longer need to pepper conversations with incessant references to fictitious husbands, and "Idol-Worship for the Apathetic" workshops are cancelled when no-one bothers to show up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nogori's national animal is the Wilda, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Philipian Church of Nogori.

Nogori is ranked 24,308th in the world and 1,269th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 71.37 on the Human Development Index.
