The Republic of Kiasu-ism is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Joe Everyman with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 30.964 billion Kiasu-langs love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 4.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kiasu-lang economy, worth an astonishing 11,759 trillion Peanuts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 379,784 Peanuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Soldiers' positions are given away by the glint of their bayonets, maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, and people can often be seen driving to work in war-surplus tanks. 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 92,671st in the world and 3,002nd in the South Pacific for Most Average, scoring 38.73 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
