The Nomadic Peoples of Afhonikkwn is a massive, genial nation, notable for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.823 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 Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Afhonikkwn economy, worth 25.3 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, Pizza Delivery, and Information Technology. Average income is 13,859 Grakens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, parents often leave their kids in the car while they attend mindfulness meditation sessions, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, and the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters. 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 25,258th in the world and 153rd in Forest for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 71.75 Effective Tax Rate.
