The Commonwealths of Kaystein is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Fayre with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.59 billion Kaystine have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of SalemGate. The average income tax rate is 52.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Kaystinian economy, worth 208 trillion Quertz Russlings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 131,262 Quertz Russlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, a degree in Fayre Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, and elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kaystein's national animal is the Alstran Lynx, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

Kaystein is ranked 5,529th in the world and 126th in the Rejected Realms for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 16 Valid Endorsements.
