The Warzone States of Kyldellian Mencorp is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.7 billion Kyldellians 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, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Law & Order isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dark City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Kyldellian economy, worth an astonishing 11,578 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 787,632 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military perceives nations hit by natural disasters as "easy pickings", awkward tourists are offered the 'unique experience' of rodeo clown, cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, and the nation's student exchange programs are something of a one way street. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Kyldellian Mencorp's national animal is the Monster, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Morvolox.

Kyldellian Mencorp is ranked 24,472nd in the world and 1st in Kylden for Nudest, with 216 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
