The Holy Empire of Nonus The Hobo is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Nonus The Bearded with an even hand, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, smutty television, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 12.187 billion Vagabonds have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hooverville. The average income tax rate is 8.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Under His Watchful Eye economy, worth a remarkable 2,068 trillion Knick-Knacks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Gambling, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 169,723 Knick-Knacks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, it is illegal for a parent to tell a child to stop eating their boogers, truck drivers turn their engines off and coast whenever they're going downhill, and a soldier's body is a temple. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Nonus The Hobo's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Fever Dreams.

Nonus The Hobo is ranked 59,279th in the world and 103rd in Forest for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 3,251.24 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
