The Kingdom of Nikolia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Aleksandar II with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, unlimited-speed roads, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 16.487 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.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — 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 81.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nikolian economy, worth a remarkable 1,202 trillion Krunas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 72,913 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 a very well-funded 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 174,618th in the world and 13th in Astyria for Most Authoritarian, with 366.14 milliStalins.
