Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Keybobo is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its enslaved workforce, unlimited-speed roads, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 425 million 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quixlota. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51.9%.

The very strong Keyboboan economy, worth 36.1 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, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, 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 85,042 Sukanoes, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

Women are ordered home to reproduce for the glory of the Empire, the country is preparing for war, the government has organised a nationwide cull of infected Rhinoceroses, and a government program is underway to revitalize Keybobo's beaches. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force. Keybobo's national animal is the Rhinoceros, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Keybobo is ranked 85,420th in the world and 4,657th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 1,202.19 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
