The Queendom of Nyx and Nyx Territories is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Austin Melsler with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.824 billion Nyxis have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coamo. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Nyxi economy, worth 448 trillion Nyxi Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,050 Nyxi Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas, the government is spending more on exports to Brasilistan than it's receiving from tariffs on the imports, postcards from Nyxi driving test centres are popular souvenirs, and feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nyx and Nyx Territories's national animal is the Gray fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nyx and Nyx Territories is ranked 37,195th in the world and 1,354th in Lazarus for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 4,408.25 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
