The Protectorate of Keglen is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.203 billion Keglenians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Keglen City. The average income tax rate is 94%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Retail.

Commuter vessels have trouble staying afloat due to increased passengers, businesses are scrambling to adapt to the government's mandate that 'time and measurement no longer exist', poets and writers are regularly rounded up and shot for entertainment, and funding for education has been redirected into the military. Crime is a serious problem. Keglen's national animal is the Kegal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the Keglen.

Keglen is ranked 6th in Keglen and 119,289th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring -89 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
