The Socialist Republic of Kergstan is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Okja Nerkutoa with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.384 billion Kergstanis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Almatar. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Kergstani economy, worth a remarkable 1,136 trillion Tares a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 135,545 Tares, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, "Mad Max: Returning Again to Barrydrome" is this year's unexpected summer blockbuster, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, and therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kergstan's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kergstan is ranked 62,715th in the world and 391st in The Communist Bloc for Nudest, with 170.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
