The Empire of Nihilismicus is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Sir Jack Harper with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, pith helmet sales, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 16.308 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nihilismicus City. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Nihilismicusian economy, worth a remarkable 7,691 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, and Woodchip Exports. 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 471,645 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The term "Native Nihilismican" has been redefined as anyone with the same skin color as the majority, all weapon research has been banned, morality classes are compulsory for all school students, and the national Police Academies have dedicated infant wings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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 956th in the world and 18th in Europe for Largest Governments, scoring 62.35 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
