The Community of Lycun is a colossal, genial nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 5.267 billion Lycunians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sayal. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lycunian economy, worth 540 trillion Luxes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 102,625 Luxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Glamping Lycunians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, and the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lycun's national animal is the Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lycun is ranked 24,163rd in the world and 1,453rd in Osiris for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 203.76 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
