The Federal Republic of Lykens is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by State Counselor Kenneth Diaz with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 17.223 billion Lykensburgers enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lykens. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Lykensburgish economy, worth a remarkable 2,360 trillion Lykens Dollars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 137,063 Lykens Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", tardiness has increased after carpooling was classified as a criminal offense, and more than one company makes the board game Monopoly. Crime is totally unknown. Lykens's national animal is the Sheep, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Liberal Millennialism.

Lykens is ranked 22,968th in the world and 7th in Greater Olympus for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 7,196.53 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
