The Grand Duchy of Nyock is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its soft-spoken computers, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 453 million Nyockians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dromei City. The average income tax rate is 66.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Nyockian economy, worth 31.4 trillion frons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 69,408 frons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A child's only Trickster Night scare is the sight of their parents dancing, the NBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers, and the Party has more splits than a yo-yo dieter's trousers. Crime is totally unknown. Nyock's national animal is the parrot, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Nyock is ranked 20,425th in the world and 1,050th in The North Pacific for Most Secular, with 56.36 Atheism Rate.
