N is for Nobility
Nobility something that has gone the way of all things old. The European caste system has pretty much gone by the wayside and with it the last of the nobility.
This country was founded on a system of equality, so nobility has not had roots here. We are a country of haves and have nots and in some cases it's because people have worked hard to make what they have count. The closest this country came to nobility was the Kennedy's and yet, many of them have proven they are no more noble than your next door neighbor or the panhandler on the corner. In fact, in many ways the panhandler might be more noble.
Yes, the world is still filled with royalty in the figurehead sense, but the nobility is all but gone. Not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing.
