Overview Factbook Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic People's Republic of Nikostan is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its vat-grown people, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.352 billion Nikostanians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Konia. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Nikostanian economy, worth 526 trillion Konis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 120,962 Konis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government funds large training centres to turn Pigeons into functioning members of society, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, internet flame wars have been known to cause real-world casualties, and Leader's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nikostan's national animal is the Pigeon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nikostan is ranked 3,262nd in the world and 37th in The Internationale for Best Weather, with 319 Meters Of Sunlight.
