The Closed Border Kingdom of Saint Kus Viseatanumpance is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by HM King Wilhelm IV of The SKV with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.354 billion Kusians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alsborn. The average income tax rate is 68.5%.

The powerhouse Kusian economy, worth 237 trillion Vises a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,769 Vises, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

HM King Wilhelm IV of The SKV's recent "I have a dream that we will fight them by raking muck on the beaches" speech seems a little derivative to many, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, cowboys often wear wolfskin jackets to the saloon, and signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saint Kus Viseatanumpance's national animal is the Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kusisim.

Saint Kus Viseatanumpance is ranked 167,803rd in the world and 7,222nd in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 8.35 Obesity Rate.
