The Universal Novohispano Empire of Kynor is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Daniel II with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, infamous sell-swords, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.564 billion Kynorans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San José de Cobán. The average income tax rate is 80.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kynoran economy, worth 873 trillion Kynoran pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 191,285 Kynoran pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Conspiracy nuts claim that the government is trying to bring about an end to civilisation, the Kynoran war navy contains an oddly large number of luxury yachts and cruise liners, the new cheese tax is colloquially known as "wheel welfare", and the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kynor's national animal is the Imperial crocodile, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Kynor is ranked 85,636th in the world and 18th in Azure Watester Federation for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,610.86 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
