|Leader||Queen Helianthys the Farseer|
|Animal||Eurasian eagle owl|
The Constitutional Monarchy of Nyctia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Queen Helianthys the Farseer with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, anti-smoking policies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.98 billion Nyctians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bubo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.0%.
The frighteningly efficient Nyctian economy, worth 273 trillion tytoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 138,149 tytoes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 404,767 per year while the poor average 37,191, a ratio of 10.9 to 1.
There has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, the Fashion Channel can only be viewed on widescreen TVs, street preachers spend more time condemning government bureaucracy than passers-by, and stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nyctia's national animal is the Eurasian eagle owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
