The Empire of Nihilismicus is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Sir Jack Harper with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, ban on automobiles, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 19.015 billion Nihilismicans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nihilismicus City. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Nihilismicusian economy, worth a remarkable 9,175 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 482,515 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

A recent "genocide prevention" campaign includes murdering children based on their DNA, brain injury is seen as a desirable outcome rather than a side effect of contact sports, cops with assault weaponry are forcing their way into private homes to search for terrorists, and citizens are told that foreigners are hungry ghosts who eat the flesh of the overly curious. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Nihilismicus's national animal is the Serpent, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Cult of Nyarlathotep.

Nihilismicus is ranked 256,177th in the world and 1,089th in Europe for Smartest Citizens, with 1.35 quips per hour.
