The Democratic States of Kiaville is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Kia with a fair hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, compulsory vegetarianism, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.267 billion Kiavilleans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiatown. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Kiavillean economy, worth a remarkable 3,292 trillion Kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 292,266 Kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

If a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Kiavillean satellites can detect it, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, standing on a chair to reach a top shelf is seen as evidence of narcissistic personality disorder, and 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kiaville's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kiaville is ranked 154,183rd in the world and 3,558th in the Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 536.34 milliStalins.
