The Armed Republic of NicoElChico is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Nico with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.09 billion Hoomans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of NicoCity. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.7%.

The powerhouse a Hooman economy, worth 120 trillion DankMemezzes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 110,991 DankMemezzes, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

Lottery winners spend most of their money on security, kids laugh off vandalism and arson as "just fun", chrome-clad space marines are such stuff that dreams are made on, and school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. NicoElChico's national animal is the Pepe, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

NicoElChico is ranked 179,998th in the world and 9th in Totalitaria for Most Politically Free, scoring 0.14 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
