The Confederacy of Keefenstein is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, surprisingly youthful workforce, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 17.168 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 43.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Keefensteinian economy, worth a remarkable 2,092 trillion keefers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 121,865 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 177th in the Rejected Realms and 11,705th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 177 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
