The Glorious Socialist Autocracy of Ketri is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its closed borders, soft-spoken computers, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 747 million Ketrians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Festungsstadt. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Ketrian economy, worth 79.8 trillion Tris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 106,873 Tris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Children have only the most basic of education, drunk drivers are sentenced to death, ghost regiments exist only on paper, and the nation's exceedingly polite children have often been referred to as "robots" by international media. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ketri's national animal is the swan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Ketri is ranked 14,923rd in the world and 3rd in The Glorious Evolution for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 105.7 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
