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 barren, inhospitable landscape, enslaved workforce, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.932 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, 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 1,836 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 264,992 landis, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,738,041 per year while the poor average 15,820, a ratio of 109 to 1.

Leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, some nut with no hands but a bronze hook has been seen stealthily slicing fifths off bread loaves, tourist operators promise visitors tours of live burning shipwrecks and plane crash sites, and death row is annually emptied to feed the nation's hunger for televised murder-games. 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 16,761st in the world and 32nd in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 10,482.78 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
