The Wonderland of Keronika is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Sir Daniel with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.192 billion Keronikas enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Commerce, although Education and the Environment are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 59%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing, Tourism, and Pizza Delivery industries.
UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and Members of Parliament are often found living in cardboard boxes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Keronika's national animal is the sasquach, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Charismatic Wiccan Scientists, and its currency is the pound.
