Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingfordian Republic of Kingsley Bedford is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mikhail Aruthyan jr with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 16.897 billion Kingfordians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sirushostan. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kingsley Bedfordian economy, worth a remarkable 2,280 trillion Kingfordian Drams a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 134,980 Kingfordian Drams, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mikhail Aruthyan jr's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, and witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kingsley Bedford's national animal is the Firebird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Kingsley Bedford is ranked 145,849th in the world and 3rd in Novus Licentia Terra for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -15.17 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
