The Constitutional Monarchy of Nyctia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Helianthys the Farseer with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, prohibition of alcohol, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.336 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bubo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Nyctian economy, worth 325 trillion tytoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 139,290 tytoes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 401,660 per year while the poor average 38,345, a ratio of 10.5 to 1.

Property values in suburbs have nosedived after the middle class were forced to live next door to ethnic minorities, weapons are only sold to foreign governments that are legitimate enough to not bounce the cheque, the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, and the construction of massive skyscrapers seems to be the result of Nyctia's mid-life crisis. 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.

Nyctia is ranked 1,255th in the world and 835th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 126 Valid Endorsements.
