Niconiistan - An Introduction

Niconiistan is, as of 2814 a worldwide theocracy that was founded on June 30th, 2160 in the ruins of Akihabara, Japan following a devastating nuclear war in 2025 that resulted in the end of modern civilization. Though the origins of this superstate are unclear, the theocratic nature of the state and the location of its founding leads most historians to assume that it is the result of survivors in Japan mistaking the ruins of a store that was selling school idol anime merch for a religious shrine, with the character Nico Yazawa likely being a heavily promoted character within said store. What started off as ironic amusement quickly became sincere worship of this idol and the Church of Nico was founded not long after.
