The Republic of Kyupaa is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Winterlady with an even hand, and notable for its national health service, daily referendums, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 38.715 billion Kyupaans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ivdisha. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Kyupaan economy, worth 950 trillion chalices a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Gambling. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 24,562 chalices, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to the Winterlady's wardrobe, Kyupaa has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, and politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kyupaa's national animal is the porcupine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kyupaa is ranked 37th in the world and 1st in NationStates for Least Corrupt Governments, with 98.98 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
