The Republic of Kiasu-ism is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Joe Everyman with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 31.004 billion Kiasu-langs enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 4.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kiasu-lang economy, worth an astonishing 11,785 trillion Peanuts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 380,134 Peanuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, and children are often punished for the sins of the fathers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kiasu-ism's national animal is the Homo Kiasu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kiasu-ism is ranked 208,090th in the world and 7,681st in the South Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -73.5 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
