The Pan-Rusinian Confederation of Nocturnalis is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Sivir II Celreos with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, unlimited-speed roads, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 22.433 billion Nocts are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neustri. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Noctish economy, worth a remarkable 6,694 trillion Nomisems a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 298,418 Nomisems, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are tied down and forced to watch educational videos on empathy, digital novelty coins make for surprising vanguards of the revolution, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', and the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nocturnalis's national animal is the Corvid, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Verunism.

Nocturnalis is ranked 9,802nd in the world and 2nd in New Sovereign Charter for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 7,741.52 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
