The Constitutional Monarchy of Nyctia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Helianthys the Farseer with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.68 billion Nyctians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bubo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Nyctian economy, worth 373 trillion tytoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 139,480 tytoes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 407,478 per year while the poor average 37,703, a ratio of 10.8 to 1.

It turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, the government's approval ratings go down while its turnover rate goes up, Nyctia's fine wines are renowned throughout the region, and glancing at the car radio display while driving is treated as attempted homicide. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nyctia's national animal is the Eurasian eagle owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nyctia is ranked 32,054th in the world and 1,607th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 4,545.6 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
