OverviewFactbookDispatchesPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Republic of Lower Nubia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Bisharin with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.204 billion Lower Nubians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Napata. The average income tax rate is 84.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lower Nubian economy, worth a remarkable 1,176 trillion Nubian dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 163,320 Nubian dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, white strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, and rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lower Nubia's national animal is the Nubian Ibex, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Coptic Orthodoxy.

Lower Nubia is ranked 5,352nd in the world and 8th in Africa for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 16,292.38 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
