The Republican Empire of Kyundao is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Haytham Sung with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.55 billion Kyundaoans are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The relatively small, moralistic, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Kyundao City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Kyundaoan economy, worth 176 trillion Won a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 114,010 Won, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 687,143 per year while the poor average 8,508, a ratio of 80.8 to 1.

Customs turn away those considered to have an unfavourable ethnicity, industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out, drunk drivers are sentenced to death, and owning a tractor is widely regarded as an essential prerequisite to most government positions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Kyundao's national animal is the Gibbon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Kyundao is ranked 11,700th in the world and 330th in the South Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 6,566.87 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
