The Kingdom of Tycorn is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Corvo with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The cynical population of 6.682 billion Tycornians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arkhan. The average income tax rate is 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tycornian economy, worth 659 trillion Zycorns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 98,702 Zycorns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive, state dairy cow's milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets, religious households enthusiastically use whips in private, and social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tycorn's national animal is the Leviathan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tycorn is ranked 157,210th in the world and 1,083rd in 10000 Islands for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -8.12 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
