Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingfordian Republic of Kingsley Bedford is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Mikhail Aruthyan jr with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 18.695 billion Kingfordians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 93.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kingsley Bedfordian economy, worth a remarkable 2,878 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 153,993 Kingfordian Drams, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The fire protection service is wholly government-funded, extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, a video of Mikhail Aruthyan jr wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. 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 152,382nd in the world and 2nd in Novus Licentia Terra for Most Devout, with 7.68 Prayers Per Hour.
