The Tater Nuker-isaune of Nakarisaune is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.943 billion adorable authors enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Defense and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Poppaea Maxima. The average income tax rate is 77.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nakarisaunean economy, worth a remarkable 2,545 trillion hyenas 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, highly specialized black market in Book Publishing, Tourism, Information Technology, and Gambling. 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 121,539 hyenas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Third world countries are rich in "I Love Poppaea Maxima" t-shirts, pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit, Max Barry finally has time for writing books after NationStates was recently outlawed, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Nakarisaune's national animal is the aardvark, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nakarisaune is ranked 79,134th in the world and 3,057th in the South Pacific for Most Patriotic, with 15.3 flags saluted per person per day.
