The Armed Republic of Narinoland is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Latorre with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.165 billion narineans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mussa. The average income tax rate is 57.1%.

The frighteningly efficient narinean economy, worth 675 trillion Maccas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 109,600 Maccas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Atheist missionaries spread doubt overseas, students do more community service than homework, the inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only, and the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Narinoland's national animal is the goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Narinoland is ranked 97,747th in the world and 3,586th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 48.78 on the Rand Index.
