The Uptight Democracy of Keon is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Keo with a fair hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.773 billion Keonians enjoy great social freedoms and frequent elections, where the majority of the populace regularly votes to increase its benefits at the expense of various hapless minorities.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Desert Dome. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Keonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,501 trillion Silver Bars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 260,050 Silver Bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One does not simply walk into the tundra, little kids often wonder why strange grown-ups are following them around the soft play areas, the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, and Keo's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Keon's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Keon is ranked 245,723rd in the world and 5,958th in the Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 3.36 Whatever.
