The Protectorate of Keglen is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.509 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Information Technology and Retail.

Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, waste is frequently shipped to other countries, those found guilty of illicit affairs are jailed, and a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high. 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 111,424th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring -103 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
