The People's Republic of Of NUGE is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Nuge with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.313 billion 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 medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nuge City. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient NUGEian economy, worth 587 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified 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 amazing 254,093 NUGE BUCKS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, NUGEian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Nuge, and lip-readers are often left perplexed by political rallies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Of NUGE's national animal is the BEAGLE, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Of NUGE is ranked 6,833rd in the world and 26th in New Western Empire for Most Developed, scoring 92.41 on the Human Development Index.
