The Militant Empire of Kyavan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Archduke Nathaniel Aelrich with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.613 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, moralistic, 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 Jadotgrad. The average income tax rate is 79.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Kyavanian economy, worth 228 trillion Crowns a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 141,625 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Sports journals are full of uplifting puff-pieces on professional boxers, the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage, anyone can get ahead in life if they want to, and unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves. 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 Protestant Orthodoxy.

Kyavan is ranked 5,512th in the world and 136th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 16 Valid Endorsements.
