The Sovereign Delegacy Realm of Nulkia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Julio of Nulkia-Von Arcadia-Sova with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory military service, and public floggings. The compassionate population of 6.446 billion Nulkians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Felixcity. The average income tax rate is 83.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Nulkian economy, worth 524 trillion Nulkian Francs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 81,374 Nulkian Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, a new "thought police" branch is being developed, beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, and travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nulkia's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Nulkianism.

Nulkia is ranked 203,244th in the world and 583rd in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -18.71 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
