The Elvish Kingdom of Kialga is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Elorshin with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and hatred of cheese. The cynical, devout population of 12.425 billion Kialgans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yultra. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Kialgan economy, worth 940 trillion Jhinaris a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 75,706 Jhinaris, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Abortions are routinely performed in Kialga's hospitals, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', the government enforces a policy of 'from each according to their ability, to each according to the available budget', and religion is strictly forbidden within school grounds. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kialga's national animal is the jungle weaver, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Colrata Mysticism.

Kialga is ranked 179,461st in the world and 1st in International Western Union for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -98.21 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
