The Empire of Kyria is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prince Gilead II with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical population of 5.384 billion Kyrians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Libertatium. The average income tax rate is 82.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kyrian economy, worth 929 trillion shillings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 172,575 shillings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, all the playground's a stage for Kyrian schoolchildren, Prince Gilead II can often be found attempting to coax random citizens' cats down from trees, and the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kyria's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Kyria is ranked 44,690th in the world and 14th in The United Islands of the Atlantic for Most Secular, with 30.94 Atheism Rate.
