The Republic of Kyupaa is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Winterlady with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 40.532 billion Kyupaans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ivdisha. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Kyupaan economy, worth 992 trillion chalices a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Gambling. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 24,495 chalices, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Attempts to inform people about their unclaimed property are often mistaken for telephone scams, police escort anti-abortion activists to free speech cages if they try to express their views, the nation's democracy attracts huddled masses yearning to breathe free, and police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kyupaa's national animal is the porcupine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kyupaa is ranked 240,666th in the world and 544th in NationStates for Rudest Citizens, with 3.42 Insults Per Minute.
