The Corporate-Owned Kingdom of Economic Nirvana is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Government Incorporated CEO Lord Phoenix with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 35.48 billion Economic Nirvanans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lucre. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Economic Nirvanan economy, worth an astonishing 14,411 trillion stock certificates a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 406,197 stock certificates, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,613,642 per year while the poor average 6,197, a ratio of 583 to 1.

Citizens finish cleaning up after the annual National Treasure Hunt just in time for the next one, an extra hand on the leg will give a horse-and-a-half of lead in a hundred jiffies on seven furlongs, bread-gangs raid restaurant waste bins to stockpile uneaten rolls, and it's said that any enemy of democracy is a friend to Government Incorporated CEO Lord Phoenix. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Economic Nirvana's national animal is the corporate weasel, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is worship of the Almighty Dollar.

Economic Nirvana is ranked 218,978th in the world and 8,950th in The East Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 3.91 Tourists Per Hour.
