The Pierce the Heavens of Kamina and Simon is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Spiral King with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, complete lack of prisons, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.652 billion Kaminas and Simons 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gurren Lagann. The average income tax rate is 82.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Simon economy, worth a remarkable 1,386 trillion drills a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 181,234 drills, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Immigrants complain that natives keep coming over and taking their jobs, the Ministry of Truthiness now manages the entire media industry, young people avoid opening doors for the elderly with impunity, and all technology must be personally blessed by religious officials before purchase. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Kamina and Simon's national animal is the beastmen, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Gurren Lagann.

Kamina and Simon is ranked 237,400th in the world and 9th in Avadam Inn for Most Secular, with 6.56 Atheism Rate.
