Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Confederacy of Keefenstein is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 18.266 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 70.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Keefensteinian economy, worth a remarkable 2,344 trillion keefers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 128,331 keefers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, and organ donation is compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 215th in the Rejected Realms and 15,093rd in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 66 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
