Population2.298 billion

LeaderJoey LaScala


The Republic of Nixtodea is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Joey LaScala with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 2.298 billion Nixtodens have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stocktal. The average income tax rate is 57.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Nixtodean economy, worth 149 trillion todes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 64,856 todes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nixtodea's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Nixtodea is ranked 88,858th in the world and 1,049th in 10000 Islands for Most Politically Free, scoring 64.67 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
