The Republic of Kiasu-ism is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Lord Vulcan with an even hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, digital currency, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 27.939 billion Kiasu-langs have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 1.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kiasu-lang economy, worth a remarkable 9,918 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 354,988 Peanuts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", nine out of ten citizens of Kiasu-ism answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation, vaccinations are mandatory, and the government pours millions of Peanuts into rehabilitation programs annually. 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 170,792nd in the world and 7,623rd in the South Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -70.48 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
