The Delighted Despotism of Nullifidian is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.515 billion Nullifidians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Accord. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.7%.
The very strong Nullifidian economy, worth 338 trillion obeisances 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 a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. 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 75,033 obeisances, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 298,792 per year while the poor average 12,692, a ratio of 23.5 to 1.
Recent events in Dàguó have been classified 'for Supreme Leader's eyes only', interviewees for teaching jobs are waterboarded to "reveal undesirable histories", the nation's endangered species are no longer endangered, and maintaining economic growth is no laughing matter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nullifidian's national animal is the impious lemming, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Compulsory Atheism.
