The Big Lake Dwarf Coven of Nisperia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Herpolsheimer Halpert with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working population of 2.455 billion Nisperians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Midnight Autumn. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nisperian economy, worth 439 trillion Deenas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 179,157 Deenas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

A National Academy regulates grammar and usage, neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, and citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nisperia's national animal is the Bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Psychopompism.

Nisperia is ranked 167,458th in the world and 5,334th in Osiris for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.13 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
