Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic People's Republic of Nikostan is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.007 billion Nikostanians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Konia. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Nikostanian economy, worth 476 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 significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 118,974 Konis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lifeguards are more concerned with watching for sharks than struggling swimmers, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room, and graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation'. 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 40,403rd in the world and 74th in The Internationale for Largest Populations, with 4.01 billion Capita.
