Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Kybarda is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, zero percent divorce rate, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 355 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marrus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.2%.

The strong Kybardan economy, worth 20.7 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 slick, highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining, 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 58,357 kronor, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Hammering a nail into a wall is an effective death sentence, the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, Kybarda has designated Marrus as its capital city, and the letters L, G, and B must never be grouped together. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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 19,575th in the world and 40th in Albion for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,796.26 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
