The Niemocracy of TheNiems is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Big Niems with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.494 billion Niemsigans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Niemsville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 60.9%.

The frighteningly efficient TheNiemsian economy, worth 322 trillion Golden Doubloons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 129,386 Golden Doubloons, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Hordes of faceless civil servants are running cities, Propaganda and Partisanship 101 is a required class all political candidates must pass before being nominated by their chosen party, euthanasia is legal, and multiple births are a cause of celebration for tax collectors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. TheNiems's national animal is the Charmander, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Niemsyism.

TheNiems is ranked 134,716th in the world and 5,848th in Balder for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -3.28 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
