The Democratic States of Kiaville is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Kia with a fair hand, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, national health service, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.102 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, socially-minded, 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 2,908 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 287,893 Kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bins outnumber trees in city parks, evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction, a well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate, and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. 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 293rd in the world and 7th in the Pacific for Safest, scoring 185.06 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
