The Last Pillar of Kyavan is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Parmenion Bardas with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.635 billion Kyavanis 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dubrovnik. The average income tax rate is 89.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Kyavanian economy, worth 935 trillion Thrones a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 165,944 Thrones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

No one born in Kyavan can fix a leaky faucet, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, and 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kyavan's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Thronic Christianity.

Kyavan is ranked 10,704th in the world and 7th in Azure Watester Federation for Smartest Citizens, with 89.17 quips per hour.
