The Dominion of Kaviska is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles. The hard-working, cynical population of 13.799 billion Kaviskans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Public Transport, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 12.1%.

The Kaviskan economy, worth 554 trillion saars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 40,164 saars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

College students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, Kaviska's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and vanity is considered the eigth cardinal virtue. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Kaviska's national animal is the temperate manatee.

Kaviska is ranked 154,515th in the world and 28th in Auretania for Most Developed, scoring 51.76 on the Human Development Index.
