The State of Nyab is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Governor with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 31.204 billion Nyabians 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Westminster. The average income tax rate is 75.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Nyabian economy, worth 530 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 16,988 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military has quashed a recent coup attempt, Nyab has designated Westminster as its capital city, The Governor has just been declared ruler of Nyab in an international press conference, and social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nyab's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nyab is ranked 161,093rd in the world and 7th in World for Fattest Citizens, with 9.47 Obesity Rate.
