The Republic of Kiasu-ism is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Vulcan with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 29.197 billion Kiasu-langs are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. The average income tax rate is 33.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kiasu-lang economy, worth an astonishing 10,865 trillion Peanuts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 372,130 Peanuts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", tourists call Kiasu-lang beach towns "the fine coastline", short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants, and relationships often break down when doctors tell couples they are genetically incompatible. Crime is totally unknown. Kiasu-ism's national animal is the Homo Kiasu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kiasu-ism is ranked 107,412th in the world and 4,289th in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 48.95 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
