The Kingdom of Kerwa is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.081 billion Kerwans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The thriving Kerwan economy, worth 77.4 trillion Oranges a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 71,632 Oranges, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 253,555 per year while the poor average 14,611, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Kerwa's national animal is the Banana, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Kerwa is ranked 193,496th in the world and 7,206th in the Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 21.21 quips per hour.
