The Capitalist Republic of Kyundao is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Chairman Sung with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.117 billion Kyundaoans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, 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 Kyundao City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.2%.

The powerhouse Kyundaoan economy, worth 112 trillion Won a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 100,557 Won, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 580,187 per year while the poor average 8,329, a ratio of 69.7 to 1.

The nation's people have woken up to find themselves colonial masters of Brasilistan, the nation has gained millions of new citizens overnight, urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. 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 Secularism.

Kyundao is ranked 174,049th in the world and 1,759th in 10000 Islands for Least Corrupt Governments, with 90.82 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
