|Leader||Queen Helianthys the Farseer|
|Animal||Eurasian eagle owl|
The Constitutional Monarchy of Nyctia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Helianthys the Farseer with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.624 billion Nyctians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The relatively small government prioritizes Education, although Law & Order, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bubo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.2%.
The frighteningly efficient Nyctian economy, worth 217 trillion tytoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 133,712 tytoes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 382,826 per year while the poor average 37,179, a ratio of 10.3 to 1.
Soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, the government is interviewing for thousands of 'Religious Censor' positions, Queen Helianthys the Farseer goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses, and Chekhov's guns are killing the entertainment budget. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nyctia's national animal is the Eurasian eagle owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
