As with any society, no-one knows exactly how many people currently exist in Nilkawt or even how many Nilkawtian citizens happen to be in the world at any particular moment. In fact, many matters concerning the population and citizenry of Nilkawt are state secrets.
The Nilkawtians obviously wish to enlighten the world. Even so, they would not wish to do so in any way likely to be excessively embarrassing to anyone, including themselves.
Full citizens of Nilkawt understand the basis of enlightenment, in all its forms. They have peaceful intentions, though never in an annoyingly ambitious, overly friendly or otherwise disruptive manner.
The relatively permanent and stable population of Nilkawt has been estimated, by reasonably competent mathematicians, to be somewhere in the vicinity of 500,000 to 600,000 people. At any time, however, there are at least 100,000 non-permanent persons in the population, at least a few of whom may be considered, by reasonably competent psychologists, to be mentally unstable.
The current land area of Nilkawt, including all water bodies, is roughly
3,579.13 km2. The seven counties of Nilkawt, otherwise known as artistic territories, are of unequal sizes. There have been many discussions, too, about their unequal populations.
