The Empire of The island of Kiria is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Lord Emperor with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 23.823 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 medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Defense, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiria. The average income tax rate is 47.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kirian economy, worth a remarkable 5,706 trillion Golden Doubloons a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 239,554 Golden Doubloons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, and mechanics are often exhausted by their work. 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 8,651st in the world and 198th in The East Pacific for Most Armed, with 9.64 Weapons Per Person.
