The Protectorate of Keglen is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.06 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, moralistic, 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 93%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Retail.

Military geniuses responsible for brilliant campaigns are drummed out because they have close same-sex friends and an interest in interior design, military spending recently hit a new high, anti-tourism militias patrol the borders, and Keglen's newly-famous raindances to summon storms instead attract tourists from all over Keglen. Crime is a 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 1st in Keglen and 509th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 17 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
