The Archbishopric of Nephican City is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Virilis II with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, devout population of 9.895 billion Nephicans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nephican City. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Nephican economy, worth a remarkable 1,243 trillion Gold Coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 125,633 Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Male politicians lose their jobs for staring too long at their female counterparts, therapists can always squeeze in another house-call, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, and more than one company makes the board game Monopoly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nephican City's national animal is the Auralian Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nephican City is ranked 23,566th in the world and 3rd in Auralia for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 52.44 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
