The Republic of Kiasu-ism is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Joe Everyman with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 31.697 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 relatively small, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 37.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kiasu-lang economy, worth an astonishing 12,256 trillion Peanuts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 386,691 Peanuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators, the Kiasu-lang Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, and young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 78th in the world and 3rd in the South Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 98.6 Workforce Participation Rate.
