The Grand Republic of Lycanberg is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by John Johnson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, strictly enforced bedtime, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 12.018 billion Lycanbergians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, with Spirituality, Industry, and Education also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cervantes. The average income tax rate is 35.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lycanbergian economy, worth a remarkable 1,499 trillion Bills a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 124,785 Bills, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

John Johnson has been seen stealthily slicing fifths off bread loaves, just as students finish their homework it's time for school, politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, and the nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Lycanberg's national animal is the Chanticleer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Lycanberg is ranked 13,532nd in the world and 10th in The Wolf Clan for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 9,059.97 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
