The Kingfordian Republic of Kingsley Bedford is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Mikhail Aruthyan jr with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 13.547 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.

Citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, and prison visits increase substantially during election years. 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 4th in Novus Licentia Terra and 116,790th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -9 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
