Welcome Nina and Dot

We welcome The Nomadic Peoples of Nina and Dot (, as the 222nd member nation state in 01 Eastern Roman Empire Region.

The Nomadic Peoples of Nina and Dot is a tiny, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. Its cynical population of 6 million are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Social Welfare and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 55%, and even higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Door-to-door Insurance Sales.
Voting is compulsory. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force. Nina and Dot's national animal is the Internicivus raptus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Okpoho manilla.
