The Queen's State of Kieta is a gargantuan, pleasant nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 27.807 billion Kietans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 20.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Kietan economy, worth 901 trillion betales a year, is led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 32,419 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

All tariffs have been abolished, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, gambling is outlawed, and the government is avowedly atheist. Crime is moderate. Kieta's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Kieta is ranked 127,561st in the world and 8th in Toronto for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -1.67 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
