The Republic of Kyupaa is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Winterlady with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 26.596 billion Kyupaans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ivdisha. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Gambling industry.

Citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, refugees from other nations are flocking to Kyupaa's border, legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass, and the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kyupaa's national animal is the porcupine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the chalice.

Kyupaa is ranked 15th in NationStates and 5,500th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 92 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
