The Egoist Union of Ni Hon is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Maxine Stirner-Chan with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 8.899 billion √goists 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of My …go. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Ni Honian economy, worth a remarkable 1,314 trillion Golden Properties a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 147,765 Golden Properties, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced, political activists are routinely executed, artists are pillars of society, and libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ni Hon's national animal is the Sugar Glider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Ni Hon is ranked 20,271st in the world and 314th in Lazarus for Most Stationary, with 689.2420588848 Days.
