The Republic of Kiasu-ism is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Joe Everyman with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 30.806 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 4.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kiasu-lang economy, worth an astonishing 11,620 trillion Peanuts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 377,205 Peanuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Airport security is provided by private companies, torture is illegal, the Coast Guard is pioneering a quixotic program to train fish, and government crews work tirelessly to retake the suburbs from organized packs of raccoons. 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 45,180th in the world and 1,832nd in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,999.01 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
