The Fmr Grand Vizier of KypsCrew is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Kyp with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, enslaved workforce, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 26.665 billion KypsCrewians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Parrot Bay. The average income tax rate is 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient KypsCrewian economy, worth a remarkable 3,148 trillion doubloons a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Cheese Exports industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,079 doubloons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anyone who sneezes at border crossings is turned away, justice is blinding, antique comic book collectors are disappointed to hear that their treasures are worth exactly as little as their mothers said they were, and families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. KypsCrew's national animal is the parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Piracy.

KypsCrew is ranked 58,127th in the world and 2,538th in Osiris for Most Inclusive, scoring 108.77 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
