The Socialist Republic of Kergstan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Okja Nerkutoa with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, public floggings, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.635 billion Kergstanis enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Kergstani economy, worth a remarkable 1,308 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 135,842 Tares, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tabloids publicly shun nurses for not calling home on the weekends, humble workers tempt fate for a taste of airline caviar, judicial torture is outsourced overseas, and the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen. 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 Ankili dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kergstan is ranked 242,235th in the world and 899th in The Communist Bloc for Most Armed, with 0.12 Weapons Per Person.
