Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Utopia of Nightcore is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the people with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.16 billion Nightcorinthians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pasloe. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Nightcorinthian economy, worth a remarkable 3,042 trillion Holoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 250,220 Holoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

In a desperate bid for cheap airfare Nightcorinthians can be seen jogging in a rubber suit just before flying, anti-government web sites are springing up, pigeon fanciers are depressed since all their charges have gone off the twig... they've kicked the bucket... they've shuffled off their mortal coils run down the curtain and joined the choir invisible... they are EX-PIGEONS, and the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Pasloe. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nightcore's national animal is the Red Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nightcore is ranked 150,922nd in the world and 41st in Atlantis for Most Devout, with 2.72 Prayers Per Hour.
