The Republic of Kamseong is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 18.117 billion Kamseongians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 32.5%.

The strong Kamseongian economy, worth 624 trillion wolus a year, is quite specialized and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 34,469 wolus, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kamseong's national animal is the Acheyu Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kamseong is ranked 173,450th in the world and 6,567th in Balder for Highest Average Incomes, with 34,469.6 Standard Monetary Units.
