Nolend

The Community of Nolend is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 240 million Nolendians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Nolendian economy, worth 6.00 trillion grasses 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 Pizza Delivery industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Average income is 25,018 grasses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The intelligence community is playing 4-D chess with an imaginary spy network, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment, and minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nolend's national animal is the Dingo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nolend is ranked 222,929th in the world and 50th in Entropy for Rudest Citizens, with 16.13 Insults Per Minute.
