OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Kyupaa is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Winterlady with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 25.929 billion Kyupaans 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 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, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, and organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region. 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 333rd in NationStates and 112,481st in the world for Rudest Citizens, with -1,152.3 Insults Per Minute (net).
