The Keyboards of KB is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 10.811 billion KBians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.2%.

The all-consuming KBian economy, worth a remarkable 1,081 trillion Golds a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,043 Golds, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

International war crimes are good for business and business is booming, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and the environment is gorgeous so long as you're looking up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. KB's national animal is the Elephant, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

KB is ranked 34,028th in the world and 4th in Weyard for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 4,874.35 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
