The Kingdom of Kyratistani is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Secretary Riti Nynriti Gyaltso with a fair hand, and notable for its fear of technology, avowedly heterosexual populace, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.742 billion Kyratistani are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Banapur. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Kyratistani economy, worth a remarkable 1,656 trillion Kyrati rupees a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 130,010 Kyrati rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, the education system has gotten a recent boost in spending, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, and shoppers have literally had their hands full since plastic bags were banned. Crime is totally unknown. Kyratistani's national animal is the Himalayan monal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Vajrayāna Buddhism.

Kyratistani is ranked 250,016th in the world and 264th in Forest for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -7.48 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
