The People's Republic of Of NUGE is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 608 million NUGEians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nuge City. The average income tax rate is 72.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient NUGEian economy, worth 71.9 trillion NUGE BUCKS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 118,224 NUGE BUCKS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Of NUGE is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, the nation's black ops are starting to get on people's nerves, nothing gets the party jumping like Leader specifying how high, and women don't report crimes to the emergency services for fear of being arrested. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Of NUGE's national animal is the BEAGLE, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Of NUGE is ranked 125,239th in the world and 2nd in THE TRUE EMPIER for Safest, scoring 58.34 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
