The Lunar Corporatocracy of Kijsel is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Princess Kera with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.261 billion Kijsel are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lunaire. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Kijsel economy, worth a remarkable 1,265 trillion Aśras a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 202,171 Aśras, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

Burgers often list "miscellaneous meats" in their ingredients, Kijsel housewives become unusually flustered when thinking about Princess Kera, citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, and citizens must pay to enjoy Kijsel's pristine beaches. Crime is totally unknown. Kijsel's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kijsel is ranked 7,793rd in the world and 186th in the Rejected Realms for Most Developed, scoring 88.91 on the Human Development Index.
