The Empire of Keybobo is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme God-King Manfreddy DiTarko with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, state-planned economy, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.336 billion Keybobans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quixlota. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.1%.

The strong Keyboboan economy, worth 161 trillion Sukanoes 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. 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 121,114 Sukanoes, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

The military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists, strange lights seen in the sky are officially regarded as weather balloons or hoaxes and nothing else, maintaining economic growth is no laughing matter, and a government program is underway to revitalize Keybobo's beaches. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Keybobo's national animal is the Rhinoceros, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Holy Church of the Divine Manfreddy.

Keybobo is ranked 180,139th in the world and 10,231st in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -26.08 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
