The Nomadic Peoples of Afhonikkwn is a colossal, genial nation, renowned for its fear of technology, daily referendums, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 5.981 billion Afhonikkwnik are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 72.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Afhonikkwn economy, worth 84.2 trillion Grakens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 14,076 Grakens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, interest in globalism never flags, and there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Afhonikkwn's national animal is the Pickerel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is an indigenous shamanic druidism.

Afhonikkwn is ranked 183,490th in the world and 6,926th in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 303.29 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
