The Republic of Kiasu-ism is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Mr Lee with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, otherworldly petting zoo, and national health service. The compassionate, cheerful population of 34.936 billion Kiasu-langs 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Kiasu-lang economy, worth an astonishing 13,962 trillion Peanuts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 399,662 Peanuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, and Homo Kiasu is one of the most popular forenames in Kiasu-ism. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 59,041st in the world and 2,825th in the South Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 56.45 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
