The Two Candles of Evergreen Keys is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Keeper with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.278 billion Keysians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great Keys. The average income tax rate is 86.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Keysian economy, worth 267 trillion keys a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 117,286 keys, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tower block residents are each held responsible for four square inches of front lawn, companies have begun running campaigns to stop people from remembering their brand name, international tensions are high as Evergreen Keys threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, and elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Evergreen Keys's national animal is the keysian dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Evergreen Keys is ranked 8,874th in the world and 168th in Europe for Most Developed, scoring 90.96 on the Human Development Index.
