The Imperial Federation of Keswickholt is a massive, safe nation, ruled by High Empress Queen Katherine with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, national health service, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.774 billion Keswickholtians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of Keswickholt. The average income tax rate is 81.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Keswickholtian economy, worth 688 trillion Tokens a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 182,498 Tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Attempts to inform people about their unclaimed property are often mistaken for telephone scams, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and exports are stamped with "made by the invisible hand you commies". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Keswickholt's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Deism.

Keswickholt is ranked 3,147th in the world and 34th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 8,355.9 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
