The Federal Republic of Keswickholt is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Honorable President James Francis Smith with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working population of 1.918 billion Keswickholtians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of Keswickholt. The average income tax rate is 58.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Keswickholtian economy, worth 254 trillion Tokens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 132,543 Tokens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Ships no longer sail as no one wants to encounter Keswickholtian pirates, the new cheese tax is colloquially known as "wheel welfare", referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, and vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction. 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.

Keswickholt is ranked 28,892nd in the world and 298th in 10000 Islands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,499.03 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
