The Republic of Kiasu-ism
“Kiasi, Kiabor, and most importantly... Kiasu!”

Location: the South Pacific
Regional Influence: Squire
The Republic of Kiasu-ism is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Joe Everyman with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, complete lack of prisons, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 30.994 billion Kiasu-langs enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 4.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Kiasu-lang economy, worth an astonishing 11,778 trillion Peanuts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 380,024 Peanuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, posters on 'Kiasu-lang Values' advise against being proud of Kiasu-ism, and major boxing matches are held in government buildings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kiasu-ism's national animal is the Homo Kiasu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
