The Empire of The island of Kiria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Lord Emperor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, unlimited-speed roads, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 16.395 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, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiria. The average income tax rate is 7.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kirian economy, worth a remarkable 3,014 trillion Golden Doubloons a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 183,865 Golden Doubloons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scenic beaches are now protected by massive concrete walls, sex offenders find themselves cut off from the ability to repeat their crimes, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, and retail stores are known for creating their own oddly-similar holidays in the months preceding any major festivity. 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 293rd in the world and 7th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 27,866.37 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
