The Protectorate of Keglen is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.042 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 is mainly concerned with 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.

High-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative', and the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry. 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 1,611th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 347 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
