The Abovian State of Nykipiflugpuu is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the MISTANYK Council with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, infamous sell-swords, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed population of 4.288 billion Nykipiks 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Timantirkas. The average income tax rate is 38.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Nykipish economy, worth 102 trillion Nykipish kekkoes 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Trout Farming, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Book Publishing. 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 23,793 Nykipish kekkoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fast-food chefs regularly win Health Innovation Awards for spitting on burgers, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, flash floods that dams could have controlled regularly ravage small towns in mountain valleys, and citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nykipiflugpuu's national animal is the walrus, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Church of Walrus.

Nykipiflugpuu is ranked 240,249th in the world and 168th in Atlantian Oceania for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -8.49 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
