The Concilia Capitalist Union of Niios is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Zhwum Ydiem with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.397 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, with Defense and Education 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 2,439 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 Retail. Average income is an amazing 290,496 landis, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,591,231 per year while the poor average 4,335, a ratio of 597 to 1.

There is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, the army's use of chemical weapons leaves a bad taste in the mouth, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside. 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 185,808th in the world and 110th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 25.08 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
