The Rogue Nation of Nyghon is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Night Haunter with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.688 billion Nyghonians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nostramo Quintus. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Nyghonian economy, worth a remarkable 4,787 trillion golden standards a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 409,604 golden standards, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The blind lead the blind in social welfare, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nyghon's national animal is the panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Xenophobia.

Nyghon is ranked 11,776th in the world and 535th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 36.95 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
