Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Kyupaa is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Winterlady with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 31.738 billion Kyupaans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large 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 715 trillion chalices a year, is highly 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 22,533 chalices, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, in a desperate bid for cheap airfare Kyupaans can be seen jogging in a rubber suit just before flying, maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, and cheese has become the new icon of political dissent. 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 15,689th in the world and 88th in NationStates for Most Income Equality, scoring 75.26 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
