The Corporate Republic of Nuclear Industrial is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Praxis Skye with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, parental licensing program, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 13.794 billion Corporate Citizens are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skye Citidel. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Corporate economy, worth a remarkable 3,542 trillion NI Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 256,796 NI Credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,623,791 per year while the poor average 16,949, a ratio of 95.8 to 1.

Former public radio talk pundits are being deployed to front line war zones, pallbearers at military funerals dive for cover when they hear the three-volley salute, requests to "pass the salt" are supported by tank divisions, and the doctor has cold hands. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Nuclear Industrial's national animal is the Jaguar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Nuclear Industrial is ranked 3,143rd in the world and 6th in The New Meritocracy for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 63.69 Whatever.
