The Turkey Leg November of Nikolaias is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Czar Benjamin Romanov with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, public floggings, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 4.158 billion Nikolaiasans 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 large government prioritizes Administration, although Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Public Transport receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Alexis Barlojamovich. The average income tax rate is 62.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Nikolaiasian economy, worth 264 trillion Quinnels a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Pizza Delivery, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 63,508 Quinnels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, the disabled are forced to undergo an MRI scan every time they pick up their benefit payments, census workers are having a hard time figuring out who is actually living in Nikolaias after the ban on emigration was lifted, and preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nikolaias's national animal is the Cyber-Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Nikolaias is ranked 255,367th in the world and 646th in United Kingdom for Most Secular, with 10.23 Atheism Rate.
