The Republic of Kyupaa is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Winterlady with an even hand, and notable for its restrictive gun laws, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 39.218 billion Kyupaans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ivdisha. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Kyupaan economy, worth 961 trillion chalices a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Gambling. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 24,512 chalices, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Surrogate mothers are encouraged to refer to their wombs as 'rental space', the parliament building has installed a revolving door, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and parents dread their examinations more than their children. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kyupaa's national animal is the porcupine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kyupaa is ranked 101,656th in the world and 199th in NationStates for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 867.63 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
