Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Confederacy of Keefenstein is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 18.636 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 2,424 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 130,123 keefers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 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 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 2,039th in the Rejected Realms and 115,693rd in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -184 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
