The Kingdom of Nikolia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Aleksandar II with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 18.86 billion Nikolians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carigrad. The average income tax rate is 85.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nikolian economy, worth a remarkable 1,369 trillion Krunas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 72,589 Krunas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Loans are available for students from poor families, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, and religious education is a new government priority. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nikolia's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Nikolian Catholic Church.

Nikolia is ranked 4,749th in the world and 1st in Astyria for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2,299.06 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
