The Kingfordian Republic of Kingsley Bedford is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Mikhail Aruthyan jr with a fair hand, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.857 billion are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sirushostan. The average income tax rate is 97%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Nude art is becoming wildly popular, refugees from other nations are flocking to Kingsley Bedford's border, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, and the government is spending billions of taxpayer Kingfordian Drams to support the Book Publishing industry. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Christianity , and its currency is the Kingfordian Dram.
