The Republic of Kiasu-ism is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lord Vulcan with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 27.012 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 minute government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Kiasu-lang economy, worth a remarkable 9,263 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 342,936 Peanuts, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, passwords to nuclear codes must now contain upper and lower case characters, Kiasu-langs refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns, and Lord Vulcan's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader. 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 166,136th in the world and 6,868th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 4.04 Whatever.
