Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of The island of Kiria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Lord Emperor with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 15.361 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiria. The average income tax rate is 4.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Kirian economy, worth a remarkable 2,760 trillion Golden Doubloons a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 179,687 Golden Doubloons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dentists routinely perform open heart surgery, it is common to still see adults with training wheels on their bikes, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, and a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 22,089th in the world and 908th in The East Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 1.2 Stalins.
