The Corporate-Owned Kingdom of Economic Nirvana is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Government Incorporated CEO Lord Phoenix with a fair hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, daily referendums, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 39.375 billion Economic Nirvanans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lucre. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Economic Nirvanan economy, worth an astonishing 16,060 trillion stock certificates a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 407,874 stock certificates, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,471,602 per year while the poor average 8,522, a ratio of 407 to 1.

People think garlic bread counts as one of their "five a day", nose plugs are the latest Economic Nirvanan fashion accessory, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, and hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Economic Nirvana's national animal is the corporate weasel, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is worship of the Almighty Dollar.

Economic Nirvana is ranked 347th in the world and 4th in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 4,875.66354624 days.
