The Federation of Nice-Pontivy is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 709 million Nice-Pontivis 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 30.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Nice-Pontivyian economy, worth 30.7 trillion francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 43,343 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, flatulent people are left to die of cancer at the end of hospital waiting lists, and orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nice-Pontivy's national animal is the active player, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Nice-Pontivy is ranked 146,013th in the world and 58th in APSIA for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -6.16 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
