The Protectorate of Keglen is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.311 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 is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Keglen City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Retail.

Citizens who become homeless are immediately executed, the government snoops on private internet connections, environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway, and morning coffees are no longer the same since the disappearance of newspapers. 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 111,693rd in the world for Best Weather, with -1,340 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
