The Commonwealth of Kesteven is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.445 billion Kestevenians 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 relatively small, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Spirituality, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.3%.

The very strong Kestevenian economy, worth 361 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is 66,385 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 208,506 per year while the poor average 16,183, a ratio of 12.9 to 1.

Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force. Kesteven's national animal is the eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Kesteven is ranked 126,392nd in the world and 357th in Field Egg Group for Longest Average Lifespans, with 68.98 Years.
