At 5,892,392 square kilometers (2,275,065 square mi), Kivu is a medium sized country



The Kivuian economy is classified by most economists as a mixed economy, a prosperous capitalist welfare state, that features a (mostly) free market activity. Kivu has a per capita output that is the sixth-highest GDP per capita among Erosian countries, and the tenth-highest in the world. The largest sector of the economy is the service sector which accounts for about 46.4% of GDP, followed by the manufacturing sector (31.2%), and the agriculture sector (22.4%).

Around 75% of Kivu’s GDP is generated in cities, with the largest b producer of GDP being Ozeanstadt. Most industries, businesses and financial institutions are concentrated in coastal and central Kivu, particularly in the X and X metropolitan areas. X is the economic capital of Kivu.

The welfare state was created in the mid 1970s. In the early 2000s, taxes were raised to expand the welfare state. This combined with a series of successive social reforms transformed the country into one of the most equal and developed on Terraconserva. Kivu consistently ranks near the top of world rankings for health, literacy and Human Development. Kivu has the sixth-highest Human Development Index (HDI) as well. It is judged by most to be a well-functioning and stable country. Kivu is believed to be one of the least corrupt countries in Terraconserva. Property rights are well protected and contractual agreements are strictly honoured.

Strict regulations prevent the exploitation of people and resources. Although these regulations are generally popular among Kivuians, some people do not like them as they limit Kivu’s economic abilities.
