The Republic of Kiasu-ism is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Vulcan with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 28.307 billion Kiasu-langs are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The tiny government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 2.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kiasu-lang economy, worth an astonishing 10,190 trillion Peanuts a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 360,010 Peanuts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Posters on 'Kiasu-lang Values' advise against being proud of Kiasu-ism, the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", the nation's apology for those it has executed in the last year has come a little late for some, and foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country. Crime is totally unknown. Kiasu-ism's national animal is the Homo Kiasu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kiasu-ism is ranked 171,653rd in the world and 7,645th in the South Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.1 Kickbacks Per Hour.
