The Prosperous Land of Kethania is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by literally me right now with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.569 billion Kethanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Night Vale. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Kethanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,071 trillion gramms of Antimatter a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 141,531 gramms of Antimatter, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Escalators are avoided at all costs, unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony, and the national anthem is a rather effective sleeping aid. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kethania's national animal is the Cthulhu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kethania is ranked 21,438th in the world and 149th in The Communist Bloc for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 5,375.62 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
