The Nightime Skies

Population7.407 billion


The Very Sleepy Journey of The Nightime Skies is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles. The devout population of 7.407 billion Nightime Skiesians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 23.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Nightime Skiesian economy, worth 277 trillion Clouds a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 37,440 Clouds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Notable individuals are granted land and titles, the Ministry of Truthiness now manages the entire media industry, women who are caught shoplifting are sent home to their fathers with a patronising pat on the bottom, and Leader's personal home is one of The Sasquatch Republic's most notorious party destinations. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Nightime Skies's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Nightime Skies is ranked 193,341st in the world and 17th in The Sasquatch Republic for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -3.46 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
