The Empire of The island of Kiria is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Lord Emperor with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 19.329 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, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiria. The average income tax rate is 17.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kirian economy, worth a remarkable 3,868 trillion Golden Doubloons a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 200,157 Golden Doubloons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Babysitters are a thing of the past, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany The Lord Emperor to meetings with foreign heads of state, it's best not to ask what goes into Kiria Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices, and members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods. 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 10,610th in the world and 330th in The East Pacific for Most Secular, with 88.2 Atheism Rate.
