The United Kingdoms of Kaystein is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, barren, inhospitable landscape, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 725 million Kaystine are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of SalemGate. The average income tax rate is 33.7%.

The all-consuming Kaystinian economy, worth 84.2 trillion Quertz Russlings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 116,106 Quertz Russlings, with the richest citizens earning 5.0 times as much as the poorest.

The Violet Mile now refers to the long line-ups that former death row inmates wait in as they transfer to maximum security prisons, glancing at the car radio display while driving is treated as attempted homicide, from the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Kaystein, and failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kaystein's national animal is the Cancer Parrot, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Kaystein is ranked 87,324th in the world and 4,845th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 846.29 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
