The Holy Empire of Bill Nye the Almighty is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 249 million Bill Nyens 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 63.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Bill Nyen economy, worth 11.2 trillion Nyen Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. 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 45,051 Nyen Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Female restaurant chefs are not allowed to have male customers, city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, on-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life, and international television adverts praise the nation as a worker's paradise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bill Nye the Almighty's national animal is the Guinea Pig, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Bill Nye the Almighty is ranked 129,284th in the world and 157th in First World Order for Highest Average Incomes, with 45,051.43 Standard Monetary Units.
