The Empire of The island of Kiria is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Lord Emperor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, unlimited-speed roads, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 19.458 billion Kirians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiria. The average income tax rate is 18.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kirian economy, worth a remarkable 3,907 trillion Golden Doubloons a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 200,794 Golden Doubloons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Movie producers send film critics wads of cash in their morning newspapers in anticipation of gushing praise, small patches of desolate land across the world are part of Kirian sovereign territory, school uniforms are compulsory, and military officers are given medals for disobeying orders. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The island of Kiria's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Imperialism.

The island of Kiria is ranked 2,124th in the world and 28th in The East Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 3,907 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
