The Matriarchy of Kerlile is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Rebecca Arnott with an iron fist, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.086 billion Kerlians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grapevale. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kerlian economy, worth 423 trillion credits a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,526 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

School plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment, freed serfs and former nobles exchange awkward glances in the produce aisle, bars are packed at all hours, and international terrorists often get their weapons supply in Kerlile. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kerlile's national animal is the honeybee, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of the Goddess.

Kerlile is ranked 40,037th in the world and 71st in International Democratic Union for Most Beautiful Environments, with 651.13 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
