The Warzone States of Kyldellian Zereack is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its feral children, rampant corporate plagiarism, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.247 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 receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greyfield City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Kyldellian economy, worth an astonishing 11,111 trillion Kerptons 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 779,904 Kerptons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The country routinely whitewashes uncomfortable parts of its history, the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, and a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Kyldellian Zereack's national animal is the Monster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Morvolox.

Kyldellian Zereack is ranked 204,052nd in the world and 8th in Kylden for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -26.68 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
