The Imperial Federation of Keswickholt is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by High Empress Queen Katherine with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, vat-grown people, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.601 billion Keswickholtians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of Keswickholt. The average income tax rate is 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Keswickholtian economy, worth 654 trillion Tokens a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 181,663 Tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again, and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Keswickholt's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Deism.

Keswickholt is ranked 4,824th in the world and 94th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 94.21 on the Human Development Index.
