The Concilia Capitalist Empire of Niios is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by some nut with no hands but a bronze hook with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, anti-smoking policies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.216 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 government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, with Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. 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 1,612 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 259,461 landis, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,377,804 per year while the poor average 3,011, a ratio of 789 to 1.

Destitute AIs lurk around online bulletin boards begging for spare landis, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, Blueriver mercenaries routinely do the army's dirty work, and sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Niios's national animal is the three-eyed squirrelbear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Niios is ranked 178,104th in the world and 429th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Longest Average Lifespans, with 24.44 Years.
