The United Kingdoms of Kaystein is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, national health service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 868 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 Administration are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of SalemGate. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.5%.

The all-consuming Kaystinian economy, worth 101 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 extensive. Average income is an impressive 117,177 Quertz Russlings, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

All technology must be personally blessed by religious officials before purchase, not showing enough enthusiasm for mutual assured destruction is a court-martial offence, drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps", and Leader has just been declared ruler of Kaystein in an international press conference. 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 74,699th in the world and 2,088th in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 101 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
