The Empire of Nihilismicus is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Sir Jack Harper with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 14.61 billion Nihilismicans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nihilismicus City. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Nihilismicusian economy, worth a remarkable 6,668 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 456,454 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Drive-by spoilers are an increasingly common crime, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, military spending recently hit a new high, and there's no such thing as a safe bet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Nihilismicus's national animal is the Serpent, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Cult of Nyarlathotep.

Nihilismicus is ranked 206,598th in the world and 1,152nd in Europe for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 0.8 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
