The Na na na na na na na BATMAN of North Nibu is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Batman with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, daily referendums, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 22.248 billion North Nibuans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of North Nibu Mountain Village. The average income tax rate is 49.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The North Nibuan economy, worth 965 trillion Trav Kharian Gold Coins a year, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 43,414 Trav Kharian Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Discordianism has been named as North Nibu's national religion, all guns must be registered, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, and prisoners work-share to cut down rising costs of keeping them in jail. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. North Nibu's national animal is the Abominable Snowman, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Discordianism.

North Nibu is ranked 219,973rd in the world and 145th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -3.43 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
