The Oppressed Peoples of KVM 4 is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and avant-garde cinema.

The very strong KVM 4ian economy, worth 99.7 trillion Shiny Green Things a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 62,893 Shiny Green Things, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Returning tourists and businessmen are detained without trial if they belong to the "wrong" religion, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of KVM 4ian Embarrassments, and corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians.
