Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Confederacy of Keefenstein is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 17.323 billion Keefensteinians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 47.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Keefensteinian economy, worth a remarkable 2,065 trillion keefers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 119,226 keefers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

Students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, employers may fire workers without giving any reason, a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, and teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Keefenstein's national animal is the polar bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Keefenstein is ranked 2,275th in the Rejected Realms and 112,386th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -170 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
