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 remarkable for its pith helmet sales, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 17.447 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 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kingsley Bedfordian economy, worth a remarkable 2,470 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 141,622 Kingfordian Drams, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, internet service is too costly for normal people to purchase, citizens with artificial limbs are forbidden to serve as beauty pageant judges, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. 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 164,425th in the world and 4th in Novus Licentia Terra for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 20.86 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
