The Coscivian Federacy of Kirav is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Postmaster-General with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 27.823 billion Kiravians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business government prioritizes Education, with Defense also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kartika. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Kiravian economy, worth a remarkable 6,825 trillion saars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 245,331 saars, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

The automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, the national sporting identity is represented by a talking burger and a singing smartphone, governments opposing Kirav are beset by rebels, and Kiravian athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Kirav's national animal is the storm petrel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kirav is ranked 3,307th in the world and 2nd in Greater Ixnay for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 82.2 Workforce Participation Rate.
