The island of Kiria

Population20.196 billion

LeaderThe Lord Emperor

CurrencyGolden Doubloon

The Empire of The island of Kiria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Lord Emperor with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, digital currency, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 20.196 billion Kirians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiria. The average income tax rate is 20.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kirian economy, worth a remarkable 4,056 trillion Golden Doubloons a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 200,850 Golden Doubloons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, most ambassadors from The island of Kiria retire only a few years after being appointed, eminent domain has been abolished, and the aphorism "there's no need to argue" has been dismissed by Kirians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The island of Kiria's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Imperialism.

The island of Kiria is ranked 166,095th in the world and 7,350th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -11.64 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
