The Corporate-Owned Kingdom of Economic Nirvana is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Government Incorporated CEO Lord Phoenix with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 36.511 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 14,891 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 407,872 stock certificates, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,462,772 per year while the poor average 8,657, a ratio of 400 to 1.

Drawing men's naughty bits isn't considered to be art, the news is showing footage of Government Incorporated CEO Lord Phoenix bullying an old man to the point of tears, people think garlic bread counts as one of their "five a day", and nose plugs are the latest Economic Nirvanan fashion accessory. 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 1,062nd in the world and 28th in The East Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 33,425.37 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
