The Free State of Kylesburgh is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 22.327 billion Kylesburghers 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 government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kylesburgh. The average income tax rate is 71.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Kylesburgher economy, worth a remarkable 1,463 trillion kylesburgh dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 65,562 kylesburgh dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Foreigners must sell an arm and a leg to afford surgery in Kylesburgh, Leader has been seen stealthily slicing fifths off bread loaves, many parents are becoming frustrated with their children's choices in spouses, and emergency services don't respond to trailer park fires. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kylesburgh's national animal is the tree sparrow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kylesburgh is ranked 66,597th in the world and 3,300th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 65,562.97 Standard Monetary Units.
