The Nikopol Empire and Archoncy of Thama is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Archon Cedric with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, ubiquitous missile silos, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The cheerful population of 15.09 billion Nikopolians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government is primarily concerned with Education, although Defense, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Roanoke. The average income tax rate is 54.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nikopolian economy, worth a remarkable 5,634 trillion Blades a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 373,400 Blades, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Roanoke's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight, billion-Blade sentient AI killbots roll through the streets dispensing hot dogs and T-shirts, the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, and crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters. Crime is totally unknown. Thama's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Craftfaith.

Thama is ranked 6,567th in the world and 1st in Asnea for Nudest, with 221.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
