The Empire of Niradans is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Victoria Adarin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.365 billion Niradansians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Immortalis. The average income tax rate is 73.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Niradansian economy, worth 260 trillion Joys 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 a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. 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 59,677 Joys, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, jail house rock has been replaced with jail house golden oldies, the Holy Office of the Inquisition is the highest court in the land, and running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Niradans's national animal is the Antilope, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lisfe.

Niradans is ranked 219,375th in the world and 9,813th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -13.72 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
