Isles of Nixon

Population20.111 billion


The Commonwealth of Isles of Nixon is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 20.111 billion Nixons have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Nixonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,746 trillion tacoes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Gambling. Average income is 86,840 tacoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, vaccinations are mandatory, and excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Isles of Nixon's national animal is the vulture, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Isles of Nixon is ranked 2,539th in the world and 51st in 10000 Islands for Safest, scoring 138.61 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
