The Republic of Kyupaa is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Winterlady with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 43.311 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 1,069 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 24,682 chalices, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Posters on 'Kyupaan Values' advise against being proud of Kyupaa, paranoid museum guards keep a lookout for any animated displays attempting to escape the premises after dark, the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, and national park visitors are reporting a rash of poison ivy sightings. 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 268,128th in the world and 869th in NationStates for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -62.64 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
