The Republic of Kiasu-ism is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Vulcan with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 27.368 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 receive no funds. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Kiasu-lang economy, worth a remarkable 9,513 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 347,607 Peanuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Posters on 'Kiasu-lang Values' advise against being proud of Kiasu-ism, the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, government-run brothels can be found on every street corner, and immersive video game experiences are interrupted by incessant disclaimer pop-ups. 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 16,038th in the world and 454th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 7,761.34 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
