The Constitutional Monarchy of Land of the Nobles is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Big Brother with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.699 billion Party members have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Ministry. The average income tax rate is 88.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Party member economy, worth 921 trillion Victory notes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 249,086 Victory notes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Many aides in Big Brother's office are known to be serial jaywalkers, life expectancies inside correctional facilities vastly exceed the national average, attempts to inform people about their unclaimed property are often mistaken for telephone scams, and Big Brother's Dreadnought-class tankbuster limousine is said to have more ammunition than the entire Brancalandian Army. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Land of the Nobles's national animal is the Proles, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is State Orthodoxy.

Land of the Nobles is ranked 10,171st in the world and 34th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 395,817 Standard Monetary Units.
