The Empire of Nihilismicus is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Sir Jack Harper with an iron fist, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, strictly enforced bedtime, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 14.854 billion Nihilismicans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nihilismicus City. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Nihilismicusian economy, worth a remarkable 6,856 trillion dollars 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. 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 an amazing 461,575 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, veterans' meet-ups involve a lot of tail sniffing, citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons, and the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Nihilismicus's national animal is the Serpent, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Cult of Nyarlathotep.

Nihilismicus is ranked 218,763rd in the world and 1,164th in Europe for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 4.44 Tourists Per Hour.
