The Matriarchy of Nuronte is a huge, genial nation, ruled by President Mariyna Winger with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 978 million Nuronteans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tarinyne. The average income tax rate is 81.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nurontean economy, worth 101 trillion Nrullers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 103,350 Nrullers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is quite common for bar patrons to discuss Wittgenstein over cordials and games of backgammon, foreign casinos have trouble paying fans who bet on the Tarinyne Owls' triumph against long odds, the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', and business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nuronte's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nuronte is ranked 150,040th in the world and 6,303rd in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 14.21 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
