The Republic of Kyupaa is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by the Winterlady with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 26.059 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.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets. 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 6th in NationStates and 1,202nd in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 232 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
