The Master of Puppets of Nilrahrarfan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Puppetmaster Katrina Stormia with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.454 billion Nilrahrarfanese are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pragia. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Nilrahrarfanese economy, worth a remarkable 3,267 trillion Mark-Litecoins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 386,535 Mark-Litecoins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,654,954 per year while the poor average 20,128, a ratio of 131 to 1.

Vitriolic divorce proceedings have become prime-time television, the only crimes that get investigated are doughnut heists, women who are caught shoplifting are sent home to their fathers with a patronising pat on the bottom, and the number of judges has tripled in recent months. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Nilrahrarfan's national animal is the Python, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Login Script.

Nilrahrarfan is ranked 149,448th in the world and 10th in Axis of Storms II for Most Average, scoring 30.26 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
