The Republic of Kiasu-ism is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Joe Everyman with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, ubiquitous missile silos, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 32.911 billion Kiasu-langs love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 1.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kiasu-lang economy, worth an astonishing 12,696 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 385,781 Peanuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Kiasu-lang Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms, diplomatic fallout tends to be much more dangerous than radioactive fallout, and every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government. 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 28th in the world and 2nd in the South Pacific for Highest Food Quality, scoring 624.41 on the Meeshlin-Starr Index.
