The Republic of Kiasu-ism is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mr Lee with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, unlimited-speed roads, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 34.912 billion Kiasu-langs 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Kiasu-lang economy, worth an astonishing 13,949 trillion Peanuts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 399,573 Peanuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, children searching for cat videos must watch dogs in equal proportion, the government has begun breaking all large businesses into thousands of mom-and-pop general stores, and thieves find battery shops juicier targets than banks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kiasu-ism's national animal is the Homo Kiasu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kiasu-ism is ranked 459th in the world and 58th in the South Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 274 valid endorsements.
