The Republic of Kiasu-ism is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Mr Lee with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 33.159 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 1.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kiasu-lang economy, worth an astonishing 12,879 trillion Peanuts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 388,422 Peanuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, Homo Kiasus are frequently shot for looking at people 'in a funny way', the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, and criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers. 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 146,736th in the world and 4,395th in the South Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3,988.48 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
