The Kingdom of Tycorn is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Corvo with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, digital currency, and public floggings. The cynical population of 9.946 billion Tycornians 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arkham. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tycornian economy, worth 958 trillion Zycorns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is 96,366 Zycorns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, and women across the country are tying the knot. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tycorn's national animal is the Leviathan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tycorn is ranked 8,602nd in the world and 157th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 91.16 on the Human Development Index.
