The Federal Republic of Kings Gate is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Paul Erdős with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The cynical population of 2.451 billion Kings Gateans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Statement. The average income tax rate is 22.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Kings Gatean economy, worth 105 trillion steel bars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 43,134 steel bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Explosive diarrhoea is not just a colorful phrase, the government has adopted a more thrifty attitude to administrating the country's needs, Discrete Structures and Set Theory has been named as Kings Gate's national religion, and Paul Erdős has just been declared ruler of Kings Gate in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kings Gate's national animal is the beluga whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Discrete Structures and Set Theory.

Kings Gate is ranked 185,960th in the world and 5,762nd in Balder for Rudest Citizens, with 30.15 insults per minute.
