The Confederation of Kedri is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Nathaniel Wilkins with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 17.421 billion Kedrians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Kedri. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.3%.

The powerhouse Kedrian economy, worth a remarkable 2,220 trillion Doubloons a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 127,480 Doubloons, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

Industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out, wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities, short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants, and police struggle to solve crimes due to the lack of fingerprint records. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Kedri's national animal is the kraken, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Deism.

Kedri is ranked 208,042nd in the world and 8th in Valkia for Safest, scoring 4.04 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
