The Neutral Union of Lock And Key is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Grand council with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.584 billion Lock And Keyians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Padlock. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Lock And Keyian economy, worth 167 trillion Pents a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 105,692 Pents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Napalm is the tool of choice for disabling eco-unfriendly forestry operations, at the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold, many suspect that the 'Whinny The Plop' children's magazine contains covert criticism of Grand council, and tourists are forbidden to enter Native Lock And Keyian lands. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lock And Key's national animal is the Peafowl, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Great Duck.

Lock And Key is ranked 21,379th in the world and 21st in Soviet Democracy for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 6,882.77 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
