The Holy Blue Irish Wonderland of Keronika is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Sir Daniel with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, otherworldly petting zoo, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 10.893 billion Keronikans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Keronikan economy, worth a remarkable 3,189 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 292,843 pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 961,925 per year while the poor average 66,856, a ratio of 14.4 to 1.

Soldiers are equipped with multi-million pound battlesuits, Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, military spending is on the increase, and interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBK Governor goes house hunting. Crime is totally unknown. Keronika's national animal is the sasquatch, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Charismatic Wiccan Scientists.

Keronika is ranked 3,941st in the world and 8th in The Kingdom of Great Britain for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.56 Years.
