The Irish My Pretitle Was Better of Nakarisaune is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.954 billion adorable mustelids 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Poppaea Maxima. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Nakarisaunean economy, worth a remarkable 1,603 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 114,944 hyenas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Conspiracy theorists allege that the government is spying on them through their carbon monoxide detectors, fat-shaming is now public policy, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, 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 5,092nd in the world and 133rd in the South Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 8,185.63 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
