|Leader||Government of Keistann|
The Republic of Keistann Ray is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Government of Keistann with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.265 billion Central Lanterns 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Holland. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 80.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Central Lantern economy, worth 299 trillion Dollars a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 132,428 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 383,527 per year while the poor average 36,236, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.
Group hugs break out during floor votes, the newest shade developed by Keistann Ray's dye industry has been dubbed 'Agent Orange', religious education is a new government priority, and passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Keistann Ray's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is DC Orthodox.
