The Democratic States of Kiaville is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kia with a fair hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, avant-garde cinema, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.62 billion Kiavilleans 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 enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiatown. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Kiavillean economy, worth a remarkable 3,084 trillion Kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 290,417 Kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones, and Kia has been known to make speeches in fishing waders. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kiaville's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kiaville is ranked 289th in the world and 4th in the Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 80.98 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
