Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Confederacy of Keefenstein is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 17.495 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 48.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Keefensteinian economy, worth a remarkable 2,090 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 119,481 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 207th in the Rejected Realms and 13,731st in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 5 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
