The Second Empire of Kiermark is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by High King Kieran III Alarik with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed population of 27.697 billion Kierics are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Social Policy, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kierstadt. The average income tax rate is 78.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kieric economy, worth a remarkable 5,905 trillion Reichsmarks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 213,219 Reichsmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, and foreign casinos have trouble paying fans who bet on the Kierstadt Direwolves' triumph against long odds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kiermark's national animal is the Direwolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Kieric Orthodoxy.

Kiermark is ranked 9,472nd in the world and 4th in One big Island for Most Developed, scoring 87.13 on the Human Development Index.
