The Grand Republic of Kilowatt is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Princeps Director Jean-Sébastien Miller with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 16.24 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 86.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kilowattian economy, worth a remarkable 4,170 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 256,825 Pentes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 70,143rd in the world and 70th in Anteria for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 1,721.88 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
