The Republic of Nikhilesh23 is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Nikhilesh with a fair hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, free-roaming dinosaurs, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 7.169 billion Nikhilesh23ians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Peacock lake city. The average income tax rate is 91.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Nikhilesh23ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,188 trillion Coppers a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 165,750 Coppers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, and major boxing matches are held in government buildings. Crime is totally unknown. Nikhilesh23's national animal is the Grey Parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nikhilesh23 is ranked 5,535th in the world and 344th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 93.48 on the Human Development Index.
