Kys Mes Shand

Population2.693 billion



The Republic of Kys Mes Shand is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its parental licensing program, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.693 billion Kys Mes Shandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 23.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kys Mes Shandian economy, worth 318 trillion Liberos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 118,283 Liberos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, a soldier's body is a temple, collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, and drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kys Mes Shand's national animal is the beaver, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is None.

Kys Mes Shand is ranked 42,654th in the world and 10th in Liberal Democratic Union for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 3,344.3 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
