The Community of Kierekiko is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by High Chief Piparekiraso with a fair hand, and renowned for its enforced nudity, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 5.568 billion Kierekikoans 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sikiero. The average income tax rate is 79.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Kierekikoan economy, worth 371 trillion chirps a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 66,659 chirps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Old spellbooks are only useful as door-stops or toilet roll substitute, unprotected royals have replaced their corgis with rottweilers, the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, and it can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kierekiko's national animal is the sparrow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kierekiko is ranked 183,416th in the world and 875th in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -2.83 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
