The Kingdom of Zykyn is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Aleksander Zykain the First with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 11.359 billion Zykynians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adventia. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Zykynian economy, worth a remarkable 1,808 trillion Imperial Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 159,196 Imperial Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

You're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, and signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Zykyn's national animal is the Aetherian Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zykyn is ranked 4,636th in the world and 1st in Grand New Earth for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 59.06 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
