The Grand Union of the People of Kiosland is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by its leader with a fair hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.083 billion Kiolanesi enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

The state is footing the bill for billionaires' lawyers, the government tries to improve relations with hostile countries by sending gift baskets, the nation's Medal of Honour can be found as a free toy in breakfast cereal, and citizens are tied down and forced to watch educational videos on empathy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kiosland's national animal is the Jinx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Jinx'i mythology, and its currency is the kiosi.

Kiosland is ranked 208th in Europeia and 23,510th in the world for Safest, scoring 178 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
