The Kingdom of Noyistain is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, triple-decker prams, and frequent executions. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 541 million Noyistainians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Patriagellis. The average income tax rate is 51.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Noyistainian economy, worth 18.0 trillion Noyistainish Jewels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 33,315 Noyistainish Jewels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All industry is owned and run by the government, swamplands and bogs have been put under quarantine, children dream of becoming physicians and physicists, and getting an autograph has become harder than ever. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Noyistain's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Noyistain is ranked 219,628th in the world and 94th in Thegye for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -12.25 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
