The Republic of Nievaria is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 654 million Nievarians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Las Palmas. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Nievarian economy, worth 15.4 trillion Pesos a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Tourism industry. Average income is 23,503 Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, getting an abortion takes less hassle than writing a letter, and all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nievaria's national animal is the Crocodile, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Nievaria is ranked 73,516th in the world and 36th in The Region That Has No Big Banks for Most Developed, scoring 53.43 on the Human Development Index.
