The Holy Empire of Niveusium is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Hyrus the Great with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.982 billion Niveusians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of White Serpent City. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Niveusian economy, worth 446 trillion Rends 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 149,774 Rends, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "right of sanctuary" stops police pursuit into temples and churches, some Niveusian athletes have defected to Blackacre after being denied the chance to compete in international sporting events, foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", and anti-government web sites are springing up. Crime is totally unknown. Niveusium's national animal is the Rose Viper, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of Roses.

Niveusium is ranked 232,541st in the world and 72nd in The DankLeft Commune for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -13 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
