The Free Land of Nigon is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Supreme overlord Nigel with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.881 billion Nigonians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nigon. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Nigonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,724 trillion Nigon Republics a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 250,615 Nigon Republics, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Online weather reports are predicting five years of glorious sunshine for Nigon, funny-looking kids are stood at the front of the classroom for everybody to point and laugh at, skin-tone prom dresses are more unpopular than ever, and firebombing politicians' offices has become a common way of expressing dissatisfaction. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nigon's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nigon is ranked 1,221st in the world and 27th in The East Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 58.35 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
