The Grand Republic of Kilowatt is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Princeps Director Jean-Sébastien Miller with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.758 billion Kilowattians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Estrion. The average income tax rate is 84.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kilowattian economy, worth a remarkable 4,056 trillion Pentes a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 257,406 Pentes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Rabbits are known to spontaneously explode without warning, strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down, five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, and the news is showing footage of Princeps Director Jean-Sébastien Miller bullying an old man to the point of tears. Crime is totally unknown. Kilowatt's national animal is the Kilowatt Great Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kilowatt is ranked 88,791st in the world and 112th in Anteria for Most Extreme, scoring 19.86 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
