The Federation of NYSE is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 342 million NYSEses are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.8%.

The frighteningly efficient NYSEian economy, worth 36.5 trillion Stock Shares a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 106,661 Stock Shares, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.

The automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, an enormous health awareness programme is underway, exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, and museum employees look down on short people. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. NYSE's national animal is the Stock Broker, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

NYSE is ranked 134,559th in the world and 2nd in Lunyya for Longest Average Lifespans, with 55.28 Years.
