The Imperial Realm of Nickel Empire is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Charles-Antony II with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, flagrant waste-dumping, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 14.62 billion Nickelians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Königsberg-Nicaea. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Nickelian economy, worth a remarkable 5,032 trillion Denarii✲s a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 344,228 Denarii✲s, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,218,459 per year while the poor average 70,215, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Employers may fire workers without giving any reason, fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back, most voters only see their chosen representative visit once every election cycle, and the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Nickel Empire's national animal is the Mumakil, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the United Church of the Nickel Empire.

Nickel Empire is ranked 37,194th in the world and 4th in Cinderia for Most Influential, scoring 773 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
