The Capitalist Republic of Kyundao is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Chairman Sung with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory gun ownership, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.055 billion Kyundaoans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kyundao City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.1%.

The powerhouse Kyundaoan economy, worth 99.8 trillion Won a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 94,606 Won, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 540,608 per year while the poor average 8,013, a ratio of 67.5 to 1.

The tools of the trade for landmine clearance appear to be copious amounts of gasoline and a box of matches, theories abound over why conspiracy theorists are being arrested, politicians have been known to swim in pools filled with Won, and election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Kyundao's national animal is the Gibbon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is None.

Kyundao is ranked 95,268th in the world and 1,393rd in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 62.74 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
