The Master of Puppets of Nilrahrarfan is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Puppetmaster Katrina Stormia with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, smutty television, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.795 billion Nilrahrarfanese are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pragia. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Nilrahrarfanese economy, worth a remarkable 3,418 trillion Mark-Litecoins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 388,710 Mark-Litecoins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,675,384 per year while the poor average 20,112, a ratio of 133 to 1.

Tens of thousands of Nilrahrarfanese rock the night away at the annual SuperLob, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', the military is plagued with unethical researchers, and diplomats shake hands with their right and hide a poison dagger in their left. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Nilrahrarfan's national animal is the Python, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Login Script.

Nilrahrarfan is ranked 225,539th in the world and 29th in Axis of Storms II for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -23.45 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
