The Sparkling Waters of Namakan is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.553 billion Namakanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kettle Falls. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Namakanian economy, worth 954 trillion Greenstones a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 171,933 Greenstones, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Attempts to inform people about their unclaimed property are often mistaken for telephone scams, the atmosphere in Namakanian boardrooms is turning more gay, people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns, and the comic book series 'Leader and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller. Crime is totally unknown. Namakan's national animal is the Lake Trout, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Namakan is ranked 267,238th in the world and 1,308th in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -30.81 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
