The Dominion of Nuwisha is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Ptah with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The quiet, industrious population of 7.412 billion Nuwishans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 25.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nuwishan economy, worth a remarkable 1,229 trillion Shins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Gambling, Book Publishing, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 165,837 Shins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Cremation is compulsory for the deceased, the government spends billions to protect Nuwisha from a disaster that is one in a million, the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, and the pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Nuwisha's national animal is the Coyote, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nuwisha is ranked 37,550th in the world and 1,099th in Osiris for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 3,720.43 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
