The Absolute Monarchy of Kingdom of Nelrok is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The King with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.679 billion Nelrokians 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 large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nelrok. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Nelrokian economy, worth a remarkable 9,229 trillion Ravenmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 425,734 Ravenmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nelrokian diplomacy is by the book, diplomacy is a foreign concept to Nelrokians, the government subsidizes everything from particle physics to fabric softeners, and escaped birthday balloons are torpedoed out of the sky. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kingdom of Nelrok's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Cult of the Raven.

Kingdom of Nelrok is ranked 242,599th in the world and 9,846th in Osiris for Most Pro-Market, scoring 10 on the Rand Index.
