The Protectorate of Nos Bae is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its ritual sacrifices, frequent executions, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.578 billion Nos Babes are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Nos Baean economy, worth 176 trillion Pessas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 111,952 Pessas, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 780,168 per year while the poor average 5,569, a ratio of 140 to 1.

Government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, it's usual for grandparents to stay in the family home with their descendants but younger children are often frightened of them, farm turkeys are given high doses of antidepressants to take their minds off the holiday season, and employers may fire workers without giving any reason. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nos Bae's national animal is the World-Eating Tortoise, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nos Bae is ranked 177,966th in the world and 182nd in Cape of Good Hope for Most Secular, with 15.54 Atheism Rate.
