Overview Policies 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 iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.615 billion Niians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, although Defense is also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. 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 2,119 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 278,358 landis, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,076,819 per year while the poor average 10,925, a ratio of 190 to 1.

Trespassers entering some nut with no hands but a bronze hook's office are immediately vaporized, Niios is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, the diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room, and the children of Niios are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence. 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 181,218th in the world and 141st in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -47.22 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
