The Confederacy of Pulau Keramat is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Dewan Emas Council with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.241 billion Pulauis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kopiona Poi. The average income tax rate is 87.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pulau Keramatian economy, worth 382 trillion Rigganits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 118,024 Rigganits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government confiscates candy from babies for 'the greater good' of the nation, young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, and destitute athletes are forced to train in the street. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pulau Keramat's national animal is the Autearoan Dolphin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Pulau Keramat is ranked 19,565th in the world and 6th in Ajax for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 5,208.98 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
