The Confederacy of Keefenstein is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 16.409 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.

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. The average income tax rate is 76%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Retail and Book Publishing.

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 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.

Keefenstein is ranked 95th in the Rejected Realms and 5,414th in the world for Most Godforsaken, with 87 Dawkins.
