The Kingdom of Noire Denholm is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by The All Powerful Monty Phugotuborn with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, vat-grown people, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 7.849 billion Noire Denholmians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gasselterboerveenschemond. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Noire Denholmian economy, worth a remarkable 1,461 trillion Skuls a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 186,192 Skuls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government fact-checkers use surprising amounts of high explosive, foreign spirits are hard to find due to an abundance of "Cletus and Jim Bob's Homemade Noire Denholmian Moonshine", a blood-red mark on the doorframe means a building must be passed over for destruction, and ordinary soldiers trade rumors about the top secret "Death From Above" project. 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 82,965th in the world and 3,069th in the South Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,372.91 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
