The Concilia Capitalist Union of Niios is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Interregnum with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.048 billion Niians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, although Defense is also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Subterraniios. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Niian economy, worth a remarkable 2,294 trillion landis a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 285,134 landis, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,235,408 per year while the poor average 9,141, a ratio of 244 to 1.

Interregnum has returned as a hero from a brutal campaign to conquer the local beach, nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, eminent domain has been abolished, and robotic spouses prove to be just as imperfect as flesh and blood ones. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Niios's national animal is the magpie with mild radiation poisoning, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Niios is ranked 2,108th in the world and 3rd in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 8,867.05 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
