The Kingdom of Noire Denholm is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The All Powerful Monty Phugotuborn with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.944 billion Noire Denholmians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gasselterboerveenschemond. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Noire Denholmian economy, worth 715 trillion Skuls a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 181,411 Skuls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Twins are held culpable for the actions of their siblings, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, popular websites like NationStates are blocked for "national security", and the government maintains a Department of Skulduggery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Noire Denholm's national animal is the Great Mock Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Dark Cult of Bothughachau.

Noire Denholm is ranked 26,664th in the world and 726th in the South Pacific for Nudest, with 195 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
