The Republican Empire of Kyundao is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Haytham Sung with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.48 billion Kyundaoans are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Kyundao City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.3%.

The all-consuming Kyundaoan economy, worth 166 trillion Won a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 112,263 Won, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 673,883 per year while the poor average 8,461, a ratio of 79.6 to 1.

13-year-old internet trolls are treated as a threat on par with terrorists, a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, politicians that report exaggerated crowd sizes for their speeches are dismissed for being delusional, and legitimate job descriptions now include "smiling and waving". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Kyundao's national animal is the Gibbon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Confucianism.

Kyundao is ranked 55,825th in the world and 155th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Rudest Citizens, with 65.56 Insults Per Minute.
