The Kingdom of Kybarda is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its triple-decker prams, frequent executions, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 718 million Kybardans 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Public Transport, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marrus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.0%.

The Kybardan economy, worth 43.3 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 60,290 kronor, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, the nation is under martial law, artists regularly face criminal charges and art-burning parties are common, and getting a haircut is a punishable offence. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kybarda's national animal is the falcon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Kybarda is ranked 19,515th in the world and 35th in Albion for Largest Black Market, with 7.71 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
