OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Nyab is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 16.026 billion are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and the Environment. The average income tax rate is 62%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, and the military has quashed a recent coup attempt. Crime is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Nyab's national animal is the eagle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Presbyterian, and its currency is the dollar.

Nyab is ranked 20th in Japvia and 30,633rd in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 44 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
