The Free Land of Nobec is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its digital currency, ban on automobiles, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 444 million Nobecians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 69.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Nobecian economy, worth 22.5 trillion Francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 50,650 Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment, internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, nude art is becoming wildly popular, and prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nobec's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Nobec is ranked 97,070th in the world and 4,264th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,036.2 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
