The Most Caprine Malevolence of Kyrusia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Overgoat with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 15.26 billion infernal caprids enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, liberal, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pandæmonium. Income tax is unheard of.

The strong infernally caprine economy, worth a remarkable 1,440 trillion Faustian bargains a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Average income is 94,369 Faustian bargains, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 744,932 per year while the poor average 2,934, a ratio of 253 to 1.

Claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges, exam halls are littered with used needles and empty pill bottles, in a fit of passion the Overgoat has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, and the Cult of the Overgoat has been named as Kyrusia's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Kyrusia's national animal is the diabolic ibex, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Cult of the Overgoat.

Kyrusia is ranked 9,834th in the world and 8th in The Local Cluster for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 8,034.45 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
