The Republic of UK Wizard is a tiny, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 5 million are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, moralistic government devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Social Welfare and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 30%. A substantial private sector is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, followed by Trout Farming and Beef-Based Agriculture.
Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. UK Wizard's national animal is the Pygmy Marmoset and its currency is the Standard Credit.
"We have to do something about them anyway, so why not market them as tasty snacks? We could have Pygmy Marmoset kebabs, Pygmy Marmoset pies, Pygmy Marmoset-on-a-sticks--the possibilities are endless!

How do I go to war against another nation? Or trade?
In one sense, you can't. NationStates doesn't include these things -- because it's a simple game, and because they would bias things in favor of militaristic and capitalist nations. One of the nice things about NationStates is that you can craft a nation into your idea of Utopia without having to worry about such pragmatic concerns as national defence.
Into the breach, however, steps the NationStates community, which has independently devised an entire system covering war, trade, and just about anything else you can think of. This takes place entirely on the forums (mostly in International Incidents), and is role-played.
Many people have asked about the possibility of a more sophisticated version of NationStates, with trade, military conflicts, and more. This does sound cool, but I haven't decided yet if I want to do that. It would be a lot of work, and I'd have to charge people to play it. But it's possible.
The Armed Republic of The mujahidin is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. Its compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 1.57 billion are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
Punitive tariffs protect local industry, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, and main battle tanks stalk the woods of Zerridan in search of lemurs. Crime is relatively low. Zerridan's national animal is the lemur, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the note.
The Empire of Atomix the First is a small, economically powerful nation, notable for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 18 million enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
