Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingfordian Republic of Kingsley Bedford is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Mikhail Aruthyan jr with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 19.262 billion Kingfordians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sirushostan. The average income tax rate is 94.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Kingsley Bedfordian economy, worth a remarkable 3,045 trillion Kingfordian Drams a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 158,116 Kingfordian Drams, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification, police aim to defeat hatred with love with their "hugs-for-thugs" program, managed media presence leaves Mikhail Aruthyan jr's family smelling as sweet as roses, and prisoners have been known to host cooking and home décor television shows. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kingsley Bedford's national animal is the Firebird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Kingsley Bedford is ranked 150,156th in the world and 2nd in Novus Licentia Terra for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.42 Crimes Per Hour.
