The Holy Green Kingdom of Kiirnodel is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Sorceress Queen Wisteria Brightbough with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, fear of technology, and compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, devout population of 6.582 billion Kiirnodelians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tall Trees. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Kiirnodelian economy, worth 527 trillion Kiirs 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 Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 80,160 Kiirs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, and criminal convictions are routinely thrown out because the accused's grandmother didn't get to testify about their good character. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kiirnodel's national animal is the Ghost Gazelle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is High Wizardry.

Kiirnodel is ranked 17,686th in the world and 44th in Middle Earth for Most Stationary, with 1,113.15194036008 Days.
