The Imperaem Khyaurem of Holy Lykos is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Imper Khydanis with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The cynical, devout population of 6.781 billion Lykosians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Politas Aksarbenos. The average income tax rate is 89.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Holy Lykosian economy, worth 401 trillion Denaris 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 59,253 Denaris, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, cars are banned from built-up areas, and excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holy Lykos's national animal is the Aquilla, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Khollessia Khysankti.

Holy Lykos is ranked 12,881st in the world and 2nd in Madhouse Productions for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,963.8 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
