The Kingfordian Republic of Kingsley Bedford is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Mikhail Aruthyan jr with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 13.253 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.

Graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, emergency room admissions for 'stampede injuries' have skyrocketed since the introduction of weekly Sabbath Eve sales, nudity is frowned upon, and teachers are routinely tested to keep their jobs. 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 61,917th in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring 16 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
