The Federal Republic of Niktobr is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Gaius August with an even hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, anti-smoking policies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 10.926 billion Niktobrians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capitolstadt. The average income tax rate is 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Niktobrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,022 trillion Neroes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 93,619 Neroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Halberds are common 18th birthday presents, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies, and the Niktobrian Intelligence Agency has put 'Project Quantum Refrigerator' on hold indefinitely. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Niktobr's national animal is the Ironhead Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Niktobr is ranked 202,591st in the world and 113th in St Abbaddon for Most Extreme, scoring 8.36 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
