The Federal Republic of Niktobr is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Gaius August with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, avant-garde cinema, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 11.281 billion Niktobrians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capitolstadt. The average income tax rate is 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Niktobrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,056 trillion Neroes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 93,659 Neroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Halberds are common 18th birthday presents, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies, and the Niktobrian Intelligence Agency has put 'Project Quantum Refrigerator' on hold indefinitely. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Niktobr's national animal is the Ironhead Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Niktobr is ranked 208,764th in the world and 128th in St Abbaddon for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -7.14 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
