The United Peoples of Keepo Republic is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Andrew Dunlop with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.798 billion Keepans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Keepan economy, worth a remarkable 1,138 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 145,977 Pounds, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 582,459 per year while the poor average 24,612, a ratio of 23.7 to 1.

One-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Unicorns and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry, and door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Keepo Republic's national animal is the Unicorn, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Keepo Republic is ranked 13,032nd in the world and 2nd in United Federation of the Blanji Alliance for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 5,973.62 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
