The Concilia Capitalist Union of Niios is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Zhwum Ydiem with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.762 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, prioritizes Industry, although Defense and Education are 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 2,614 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 298,395 landis, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,526,922 per year while the poor average 6,433, a ratio of 392 to 1.

Pollution is on the rise along with government approvals of fracking projects, Niios is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, hackers post hourly updates on international summits, and wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities. 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 96,083rd in the world and 53rd in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 590.17 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
