The Kingfordian Republic of Kingsley Bedford is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mikhail Aruthyan jr with a fair hand, and notable for its restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, intelligent population of 13.215 billion Kingfordians 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 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 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Kingsley Bedford's radio stations, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, and emergency room admissions for 'stampede injuries' have skyrocketed since the introduction of weekly Sabbath Eve sales. 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.

Kingsley Bedford is ranked 1st in Novus Licentia Terra and 1,400th in the world for Best Weather, with 375 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
