Keton

Population191 million

The Empire of Keton is a very large, safe nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The cynical population of 191 million Ketonians 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 large, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 50.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Ketonian economy, worth 13.0 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 68,067 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Tom and Jerry cartoons have cat and mouse resolving their problems with reasoned discussion, forest fires have dropped dramatically as there are hardly any forests left, the government is purchasing vast amounts of palm oil for plastics production, and a weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Keton's national animal is the cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Keton is ranked 132,021st in the world and 309th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
