The Empire of The island of Kiria is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Lord Emperor with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 21.949 billion Kirians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiria. The average income tax rate is 30.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kirian economy, worth a remarkable 4,966 trillion Golden Doubloons a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 226,274 Golden Doubloons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers, lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, and the number of judges has tripled in recent months. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The island of Kiria's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Imperialism.

The island of Kiria is ranked 99,068th in the world and 3,974th in The East Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 30.6 Effective Tax Rate.
