Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Keelut is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Ringleader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.729 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 Social Policy 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 27.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Keelutian economy, worth 476 trillion Cyans a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 174,565 Cyans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, newly synthesized elements half-lives are a million times shorter than the time it takes to say their names, and a new religious movement claims that people's souls are stored in phosphorous. Crime is totally unknown. Keelut's national animal is the Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Keelut is ranked 138,346th in the world and 7,387th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 8.89 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
