Leaderthe Winterlady


The Republic of Kyupaa is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Winterlady with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 42.786 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 enormous but stagnant Kyupaan economy, worth a remarkable 1,055 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 24,668 chalices, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Demand for night vision goggles and boat engine mufflers has spiked, The Winterlady is strangely popular with male politicians' wives, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, and guide dogs for the blind have been seen using government websites. 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 11th in the world and 1st in NationStates for Most Beautiful Environments, with 17,004.05 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
