The Kingfordian Republic of Kingsley Bedford is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mikhail Aruthyan jr with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 20.354 billion Kingfordians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Kingsley Bedfordian economy, worth a remarkable 3,539 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 173,895 Kingfordian Drams, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A five-year-old and a convicted terrorist can sit alongside one another in jury service, extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals, Bigtopian relations have become a minefield, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. 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 844th in the world and 1st in Novus Licentia Terra for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 111.73 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
