The Republic of Kiasu-ism is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mr Lee with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, cheerful population of 34.912 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 juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Kiasu-lang economy, worth an astonishing 13,950 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 399,577 Peanuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students abandon classrooms for online education, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy, and the endangered saltwater humpback Homo Kiasu is only seen in captivity programs. 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 445th in the world and 57th in the South Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 275 valid endorsements.
