The Grand Indus Empire of Kyr Shorn is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Delem Brahma with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, infamous sell-swords, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.357 billion Kyrs are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saidpur. The average income tax rate is 32.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Kyri economy, worth a remarkable 2,738 trillion Panas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 327,661 Panas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Much of Kyr Shorn's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway, Delem Brahma has been declared supreme ruler for all eternity, and fur coats have become the latest fashion trend. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kyr Shorn's national animal is the Kyri Violet Tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Kyri Hinduism.

Kyr Shorn is ranked 1,150th in the world and 2nd in A Modern World for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 22,087.27 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
