The Republic of Kiasu-ism is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lord Vulcan with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 29.19 billion Kiasu-langs are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. The average income tax rate is 32.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kiasu-lang economy, worth an astonishing 10,861 trillion Peanuts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 372,109 Peanuts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", tourists call Kiasu-lang beach towns "the fine coastline", and short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants. Crime 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 7th in the world and 1st in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 100.24 on the Human Development Index.
