The UNSC Sabre of Dawn ship A I of Kyletana is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Kyletana KTN 8642-9 UNSC AI with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, strictly enforced bedtime, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.29 billion Augmented Spartan Super-soldiers are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tantalus. The average income tax rate is 47.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Augmented Spartan Super-soldier economy, worth 500 trillion United Nations 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, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 an impressive 116,652 United Nations Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation leads Texas in per capita stalking, internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, and no one knows how to tie a reef knot. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kyletana's national animal is the Sangheili, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kyletana is ranked 11,135th in the world and 27th in Texas for Most Devout, with 2,243.1 Prayers Per Hour.
