The Empire of Kirank is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Alex Dawn with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 2.543 billion Kirankians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wolf city. The average income tax rate is 88.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kirankian economy, worth 389 trillion Slaks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 153,097 Slaks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Kirankian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, treaties are taken to be mere rules of thumb, and hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kirank's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Violet.

Kirank is ranked 42,323rd in the world and 2,229th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,237.96 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
