The People's Republic of Niveusium is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Empress Hyrus the Great with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 5.745 billion Niveusians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of White Serpent City. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Niveusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,080 trillion Rends 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 188,111 Rends, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Empress Hyrus the Great's questionably sane new coalition partners, prospective parents are cheering on the streets as they no longer need a license to have children, and 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Niveusium's national animal is the Rose Viper, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of Roses.

Niveusium is ranked 6,777th in the world and 3rd in The DankLeft Commune for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 482.59 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
