LeaderThe Ringleader


The Empire of Keelut is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Ringleader with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.877 billion Keelutians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Keelut City. The average income tax rate is 36.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Keelutian economy, worth 868 trillion Cyans a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 178,179 Cyans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Psychiatrists bizarrely accompany The Ringleader to meetings with foreign heads of state, adverts depict men giving birth while cursing the women who got them into trouble, foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", and hit TV show 'The eXecution Factor' is a critical success. Crime is totally unknown. Keelut's national animal is the Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Keelut is ranked 52,205th in the world and 2,568th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,942.47 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
