The Historian of King of the Ghosts is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King of the Ghosts with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 2.16 billion Ghosts have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Ghoul City II Electric Boogaloo. The average income tax rate is 22.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong King of the Ghostsian economy, worth 142 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 65,878 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Right-wingers complain that too many people are suckling at the welfare teat, Birb is one of the most popular forenames in King of the Ghosts, King of the Ghosts's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, and a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. King of the Ghosts's national animal is the birb, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

King of the Ghosts is ranked 144,290th in the world and 1st in The Cipheron for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -8.94 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
