The Theocracy of Keira Knightley is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, public floggings, and compulsory vegetarianism. The devout population of 835 million Keira Knightleyians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54.1%.

The Keira Knightleyian economy, worth 51.3 trillion pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 61,433 pesos, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 213,638 per year while the poor average 12,874, a ratio of 16.6 to 1.

The government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', the police strictly enforce off-limit zones for tourists, high school bands practice by moonlight, and shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Keira Knightley's national animal is the kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Keira Knightley is ranked 109,622nd in the world and 606th in Europeia for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 800.32 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
