So, I don't have access to an active directory server at the moment to test this out, but I thought I would pass on the information that I found.  This site seems to be explaining a similar thing to what you want.  

http://bradkingsley.com/using-powershell-to-list-group-membership-from-active-directory-ad/

The only difference is that the script on this site will pull all members of a group and not just the nested groups.  

So it will take a bit of tweaking on the script to get exactly what you want.  But it might be a start.

Try...
Import-Module Activedirectory
Get-ADGroup -Filter * -Properties Members | 
  ?{$_.GroupScope -eq "Global" `
    -and $_.GroupCategory -eq "Security"} | % {
      $Group = $_.Name
       $_.Members | Get-ADObject |
     ? {$_.objectClass -eq "group"} | 
  Select @{N="Group";E={$Group}},@{N="Member";E={$_.Name}}
} | Export-Csv C:\temp\report.csv -nti
