The Allied States of Cikya is a massive, safe nation, ruled by 4 Barões de Cikya with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 1.616 billion Cikyans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Cikya. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Cikyan economy, worth 52.0 trillion vorus a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 32,174 vorus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Complaining about Christmas music in October is a ho-ho-horrendous crime, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, and asking what someone does for a living is considered a faux pax for being potentially jobist. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cikya's national animal is the Coruja das Neves, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cikya is ranked 147,279th in the world and 392nd in Forest for Highest Economic Output, with 52.0 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
