The Dictatorship of Kesiostia is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 705 million Kesiostians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.7%.

The thriving Kesiostian economy, worth 54.6 trillion lire a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 77,456 lire, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 274,172 per year while the poor average 15,799, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Kesiostia's national animal is the bison, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Kesiostia is ranked 35,037th in the world and 2nd in Ikuisuus for Most Primitive, scoring 55.68 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
