The Cyberpunk Dystopia of The Free City of Night City is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Jefferson Peralez with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 919 million Night People are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Glen. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Night Person economy, worth 142 trillion Eurodollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 154,744 Eurodollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 690,162 per year while the poor average 21,556, a ratio of 32.0 to 1.

Patriotic citizens chant "there's only one The Free City of Night City" at foreigners, the silencing of dissent speaks volumes about the quality of Night Person democracy, competing private ambulances racing to be the first to traffic accidents are a major cause of road accidents, and defense lawyers suggestively note to juries how flagrantly happy victims were. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. The Free City of Night City's national animal is the New World quail, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Free City of Night City is ranked 256,296th in the world and 349th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -17.89 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
