The Nick Central

Population1.634 billion

LeaderSupreme Leader Czar Nicholas III


The Armed Republic of The Nick Central is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Czar Nicholas III with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 1.634 billion Nick Centralians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sundari. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Serving the Nick Central economy, worth 251 trillion Credits a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 154,087 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 519,753 per year while the poor average 33,815, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.

Televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events, getting an infected tattoo is considered a rite of passage in The Nick Central, the leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace', and officer recruitment and police brutality have reached an all-time high. Crime is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Nick Central's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Nick Central is ranked 142,682nd in the world and 7,478th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 13.11 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
