The Carian Stronghold of Lycos is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Queen Cari Bobson Arrna with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.415 billion Lycans 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mt Lycos. The average income tax rate is 14.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Lycan economy, worth 168 trillion lycs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Soda Sales. Average income is 49,352 lycs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks, couping has been named as Lycos's national religion, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, and plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go. Crime is moderate. Lycos's national animal is the wolf and its national religion is couping.

Lycos is ranked 188,225th in the world and 34th in Niamark for Lowest Crime Rates, with 56.39 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
