The Xenodochial Republic of Kiani is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Ziana Kaspanova with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.028 billion Kianians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kianiazo. The average income tax rate is 80.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kianian economy, worth 385 trillion Plus a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 127,384 Plus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'Totally Not Partisan News' is a line item on the government budget, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, and criminals always seem to be forewarned of police raids. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kiani's national animal is the Dragonfrog, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Xenodochia.

Kiani is ranked 50,871st in the world and 856th in the South Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 385 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
