Leaderthe Winterlady


The Republic of Kyupaa is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Winterlady with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, national health service, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 43.033 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, socially-minded 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 enormous but stagnant Kyupaan economy, worth a remarkable 1,060 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 24,652 chalices, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent. 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 295th in the world and 2nd in NationStates for Most Stationary, with 5,963.66284992 days.
