The Stellar Imperium of Holy Lykos is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Imper Khydanis with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical, devout population of 9.247 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, 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 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Holy Lykosian economy, worth 588 trillion Denars 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 63,593 Denars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Nations across the world are quick to praise Imper Khydanis's good looks and intellectual prowess, angst-filled teenagers are rushing off to buy government bonds for some odd reason, there's a mortuary next to every Holy Lykosian restaurant, and the fate of the world literally rests on Imper Khydanis's fingers. 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 Aquylla, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Khollessia Khysankti.

Holy Lykos is ranked 17,701st in the world and 731st in Lazarus for Most Authoritarian, with 2,655.98 milliStalins.
