The Dictatorship of KIROVET is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Fritz Rheinmetall with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 7.428 billion KIROVETIANS 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of KIROVET City. The average income tax rate is 89.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient KIROVETIAN economy, worth 768 trillion Cenzes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 103,485 Cenzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

No one is quite sure what many government officials look like, environmentalists have found an unusual ally in soldiers of fortune, the single fish caught by KIROVETIAN fishers last year is cited as evidence of KIROVET's thriving fisheries, and airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. KIROVET's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

KIROVET is ranked 145,786th in the world and 5,867th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -8.37 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
