The Empire of Nygon is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 597 million Nygonians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mitra. The average income tax rate is 26.9%.

The very strong Nygonian economy, worth 44.3 trillion Sapphires a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 74,146 Sapphires, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Warfare increasingly resembles a video game, over a third of the seats in sports stadiums have been removed to make room for female-only commodes, students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, and the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nygon's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nygon is ranked 118,515th in the world and 3,485th in Osiris for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 64.89 on the Hayek Index.
