The Idyllic Dystopia of The Sixteenth Night is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Dan Hibiki with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 20.324 billion Sixteenth Nightians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Thirteenth Hour. The average income tax rate is 94.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Sixteenth Nightian economy, worth a remarkable 8,901 trillion Dystopian Cypugenis a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 437,961 Dystopian Cypugenis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Autopsies often involve only cursory examination, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", and the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Sixteenth Night's national animal is the Idyllic Jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Chohatsu Densetsu.

The Sixteenth Night is ranked 244,427th in the world and 7,347th in the Rejected Realms for Best Weather, with -366 Meters Of Sunlight.
