The Warzone States of Kyldellian Zereack is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.177 billion Kyldellians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Law & Order receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greyfield City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Kyldellian economy, worth an astonishing 11,043 trillion Kerptons 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. 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 a breathtaking 778,989 Kerptons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', nervous homeowners have been blamed for rising death rates amongst carol singers and locksmiths, national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys', and eight-year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Kyldellian Zereack's national animal is the Monster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Morvolox.

Kyldellian Zereack is ranked 101,524th in the world and 1st in Kylden for Most Extreme, scoring 18.21 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
