|Animal||Wesley the Bucket|
The Federal Islamic Republic of Nikitan is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Yeet with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, daily referendums, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.076 billion Nikitani enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nikitan City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Nikitanian economy, worth 209 trillion Nikitan Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 100,958 Nikitan Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 310,297 per year while the poor average 25,393, a ratio of 12.2 to 1.
Mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas, personal injury lawyers are demanding compensation from the government after recent reductions in manufacturer liability, bleach is the nation's most common pesticide, and the military frequently holds bake sales to raise funds. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Nikitan's national animal is the Wesley the Bucket, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Islam.
