The Empire of NightFire is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Rainbow Dash with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.945 billion NightFireans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of NightFire City. The average income tax rate is 2.6%.
The frighteningly efficient NightFirean economy, worth a remarkable 1,031 trillion Gold coins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 148,563 Gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.
Military spending is on the increase, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, and NightFire successfully hosted the The Last Stronghold of Superlative Troll Olympics. Crime is well under control. NightFire's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
