“Live, work and play in Keefenstein”

Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: the Rejected Realms
The Confederacy of Keefenstein is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 15.183 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defence. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Retail and Book Publishing.
The government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, Leader has just been declared ruler of Keefenstein in an international press conference, and students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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, and its currency is the keefer.
