The Militaristic Republic of Kiljarit is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Takeshi Kobayashi with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, humorless, devout population of 34.156 billion Kiljaritians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tirajilik. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Kiljaritian economy, worth an astonishing 12,155 trillion kiljaris a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 355,887 kiljaris, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Home renovation shows are increasingly popular, children raised in multi-faith households claim the other deity would let them stay up later, employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning, and children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kiljarit's national animal is the komodo dragon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kobayashiism.

Kiljarit is ranked 250,605th in the world and 171st in Canada for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.25 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
