Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

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 keen interest in outer space, digital currency, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.393 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, although Defense is also considered important, 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 1,668 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 260,913 landis, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,435,597 per year while the poor average 2,451, a ratio of 993 to 1.

The government is a law unto itself, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and the nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course.

Niios is ranked 601st in the world and 1st in Renegade Islands Alliance for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 515.42 on the Hayek Index.
