The Reign of King Nephmir II is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Nephmir with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 7.681 billion Nephmirians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Welfare receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Auralia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 32.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Nephmirian economy, worth a remarkable 1,321 trillion golden threads a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 172,065 golden threads, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government insists that bizarre Lilliputian language game shows were made domestically, corrupt paupers spend taxpayer golden threads on liquor and tobacco, drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps", and the banshee wail foretells skies of death. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. King Nephmir II's national animal is the shadow dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Nephism.

King Nephmir II is ranked 3,621st in the world and 5th in The Eternal Order for Highest Crime Rates, with 25 crimes per hour.
