The Grand Union of the People of Kiosland is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by its leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 4.862 billion Kioslanesi 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 the Environment, Education, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiostown. The average income tax rate is 30%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Hundreds of thousands of convicts work as slaves in Kiosland's many privately-owned prisons, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, hunters have been known to lose limbs while attempting to 'play tag' with their prey, and senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour. 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, and its currency is the kiosi.

Kiosland is ranked 638th in Europeia and 96,688th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.037 Stalins.
