The Republic of Kynthes is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Arkadz Smith with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 4.142 billion Kynthesi 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Poljada. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kynthesine economy, worth 780 trillion Stamps 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, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. 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 an impressive 188,513 Stamps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, the nation was recently voted "most likely to betray its allies", the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, and the nation's soldiers are considered the best-dressed in The Hole To Hide In. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kynthes's national animal is the Gopnei, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Bread.

Kynthes is ranked 220,051st in the world and 133rd in The Hole To Hide In for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -9.47 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
