Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Concilia Capitalist Empire of Niios is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by some nut with no hands but a bronze hook with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, infamous sell-swords, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 7.281 billion Niians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Defense also on the agenda, 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 1,973 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 271,041 landis, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,902,026 per year while the poor average 13,184, a ratio of 144 to 1.

Robosexual marriages are increasingly common, former customs officers are adjusting to their new lives as market stall traders, urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, and global anti-terrorist organisations strongly suspect Niios of supplying extremist groups. 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 1,764th in the world and 2nd in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 19,775.75 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
