Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Protectorate of Keglen is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.61 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.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Keglen City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Keglenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,156 trillion Keglens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 326,216 Keglens, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,010,364 per year while the poor average 81,148, a ratio of 12.5 to 1.

A punitive tax has been placed on harmful emissions, almost all the visible space on TV screens is taken up by advertising, children as young as eight can be found working in factories, and new religious sects are squashed immediately by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Keglen's national animal is the Kegal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is a major religion.

Keglen is ranked 6th in Keglen and 122,380th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -376 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
