The Empire of KyLantiss is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Queen Kylie with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 8.736 billion KyLantissians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Custos Lupus. The average income tax rate is 93.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient KyLantissian economy, worth a remarkable 1,114 trillion Drachmas a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 127,628 Drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

War vets look after war animals, things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-Drachma charge on their phone bill, and the new one Drachma coin also makes a handy throwing-star. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. KyLantiss's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

KyLantiss is ranked 5,600th in the world and 17th in New Western Empire for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 93.47 Effective Tax Rate.
