The Holy Roman Empire of Keswickholt is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Holy Empress Charlotte of Keswickholt with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless population of 9.828 billion Keswickholtians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of Keswickholt. The average income tax rate is 93.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Keswickholtian economy, worth a remarkable 2,555 trillion Imperial Tokens a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 260,001 Imperial Tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR, road rage is rarer but more terminal now that many people drive fully-operational battle tanks to work, and abattoirs are running at full capacity in response to skyrocketing demand. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Keswickholt's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Keswickholt is ranked 294,493rd in the world and 822nd in 10000 Islands for Most Avoided, scoring 0.47 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
