The Pierce the Heavens of Kamina and Simon is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Spiral King with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.744 billion Kaminas and Simons are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gurren Lagann. The average income tax rate is 83.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Simon economy, worth a remarkable 1,415 trillion drills a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 182,832 drills, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The controversial show 'Who Wants to be an Immigrant?' has become wildly popular, would-be mescaline users often describe a crawling sensation on their skin, polychromatic seas of leaves blanket the ground while sewers and drain pipes are clogged by their detritus, and power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Kamina and Simon's national animal is the beastmen, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Gurren Lagann.

Kamina and Simon is ranked 237,977th in the world and 12th in Avadam Inn for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -21.2 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
