The Confederacy of Lykosia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Kalisa Zetalos with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 22.175 billion Lykosians 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 medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iskanderstad. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Lykosian economy, worth a remarkable 4,045 trillion Labor Hours 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 led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 182,446 Labor Hours, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun, people can get away with murder these days, and sending sick politicians "Get Well Soon" cards is considered bribery. Crime is totally unknown. Lykosia's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lykosia is ranked 226,097th in the world and 3rd in Borealias for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -53.54 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
