The Republic of Kiasu-ism is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Joe Everyman with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 32.879 billion Kiasu-langs love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 1.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kiasu-lang economy, worth an astonishing 12,672 trillion Peanuts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 385,418 Peanuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Kiasu-lang Embarrassments, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, and praying before a battle is a court-martial offence. 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 26,858th in the world and 789th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,495.57 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
