The Rogue Nation of Tycho IV is a massive, pleasant nation, ruled by Arlene Fukai with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, prohibition of alcohol, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.433 billion Tyches 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 tiny government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Public Transport, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tycho City. The average income tax rate is 8.5%.

The strong Tyche economy, worth 107 trillion Gold-pressed Latinum Strips a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 74,794 Gold-pressed Latinum Strips, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens who leave the nation for work are instantly charged with treason, fire stations and hospitals can't deploy emergency vehicles because badly parked cars block them in, jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, and the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters. Crime is moderate. Tycho IV's national animal is the Dikironium Cloud Creature, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Tycho IV is ranked 20,051st in the world and 23rd in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Most Secular, with 55.36 Atheism Rate.
