The Liberation Movement of The Keymaster is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 26.72 billion Keymasterians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Education also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Firehall. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Keymasterian economy, worth a remarkable 3,051 trillion Ectoplasmic Residues a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 114,195 Ectoplasmic Residues, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 486,218 per year while the poor average 17,257, a ratio of 28.2 to 1.

It's best not to ask what goes into Firehall Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices, rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements, there's a lot of hot air coming from the Capitol Building, and the parliament building has installed a revolving door. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Keymaster's national animal is the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Crossing The Streams.

The Keymaster is ranked 270,845th in the world and 13th in The New Meritocracy for Most Patriotic, with 0.42 flags saluted per person per day.
