The Fascist Monarchy of Kysikstan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Sal Krochek with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.321 billion Kysiks are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sal Ballan. The average income tax rate is 66.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Kysikstanian economy, worth 225 trillion kyscheks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 171,010 kyscheks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Sal Ballan Times is sold out, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, defense lawyers suggestively note to juries how flagrantly happy victims were, and state media features lively debates such as whether pineapple on pizza is an acceptable topping. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kysikstan's national animal is the Markhor, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Islam.

Kysikstan is ranked 8,094th in the world and 4th in New West Indies for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 8,360.1 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
