The Idyllic Dystopia of The Sixteenth Night is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dan Hibiki with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 20.476 billion Sixteenth Nightians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Thirteenth Hour. The average income tax rate is 94.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Sixteenth Nightian economy, worth a remarkable 8,979 trillion Dystopian Cypugenis a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 438,549 Dystopian Cypugenis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, exports are stamped with "made by the invisible hand you commies", healthcare workers are flummoxed over the spike in foreign tourists with sudden-onset heart disease, and coalition governments are essential to passing new laws. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Sixteenth Night's national animal is the Idyllic Jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Chohatsu Densetsu.

The Sixteenth Night is ranked 2,020th in the world and 62nd in the Rejected Realms for Most Developed, scoring 97.72 on the Human Development Index.
