The Republic of Kyber 113 is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, anti-smoking policies, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 857 million Kyber are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 54.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Kyber economy, worth 65.1 trillion Credits 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, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Gambling, and Basket Weaving. 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 75,990 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Renewable energy projects have ground to a halt, the government is frequently held to ransom by the increasing demands of bloodthirsty pirates, immigrants who don't like the taste of Kyber Turnip Chips are immediately deported, and recognised healthcare professionals treat diabetes with a grain of sugar in a barrel of water. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kyber 113's national animal is the Varactyl, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kyber 113 is ranked 62,872nd in the world and 44th in The Kyber Army for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,437.81 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
