The Socialist Republic of Kiteer is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leon Ulyanov with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.61 billion Kiteerians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Serenissima. The average income tax rate is 84.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kiteerian economy, worth 197 trillion Kiteerian Ducats 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 122,534 Kiteerian Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present, kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, 'Totally Not Partisan News' is a line item on the government budget, and getting milk from the local corner store no longer requires donning advanced hiking gear. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kiteer's national animal is the Winged Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secular Judaism.

Kiteer is ranked 309,229th in the world and 11,837th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -15.83 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
