The Constitutional Monarchy of Nightthorn is a colossal, orderly nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 5.439 billion Nighthorians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Athalen City. The average income tax rate is 85.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Nightthornian economy, worth 583 trillion Sens a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,231 Sens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, one does not simply walk into the tundra, a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, and squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nightthorn's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nightthorn is ranked 53,493rd in the world and 43rd in Anteria for Largest Populations, with 5.44 billion Capita.
