The Republic of Kiasu-ism is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Vulcan with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, zero percent divorce rate, and public floggings. The compassionate, cheerful population of 26.656 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 minute government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Kiasu-lang economy, worth a remarkable 8,943 trillion Peanuts a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 335,496 Peanuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The breathalyser pledge is a traditional part of marriages in Kiasu-ism, a girl's success in life is often linked to her performance in beauty pageants, builders across Kiasu-ism are blocked up with orders for new public loos, and historical commemorations regularly devolve into militaristic jingoism. 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 151,306th in the world and 6,272nd in the South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -22.77 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
