The Commonwealth of Kireerva is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.422 billion Kireervans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boulder Bowl. The average income tax rate is 75.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Kireervan economy, worth 57.4 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Pizza Delivery, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 40,395 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ghost regiments exist only on paper, students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, and artists are pillars of society. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kireerva's national animal is the Cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kireerva is ranked 244,688th in the world and 1,281st in The Communist Bloc for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -4.9 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
