The Holy Empire of Saint Nikolo is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Leo I with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.901 billion Nikoloans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valkenburg. The average income tax rate is 12.3%.
The thriving Nikoloan economy, worth 147 trillion Palm Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is 77,786 Palm Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.
Minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, citizens must pay to enjoy Saint Nikolo's pristine beaches, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, and Roman Catholicism has been named as Saint Nikolo's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Saint Nikolo's national animal is the Leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.
