The Empire of Kiraunik is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Derek Shade with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, ritual sacrifices, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.676 billion Kiraunikians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kecil City. The average income tax rate is 67.4%.

The powerhouse Kiraunikian economy, worth 118 trillion Holoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 70,839 Holoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Old warplanes and tanks that break down can't be repaired since no one makes the parts anymore, panels from bankrupt rooftop solar companies are used as props for sci-fi B-movies, corporate lobbying has been outlawed, and newspapers and TV broadcasters are given a list of 'acceptable words'. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kiraunik's national animal is the Frog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shadism.

Kiraunik is ranked 160,995th in the world and 12th in Laraniem for Rudest Citizens, with 37.94 insults per minute.
