The Libertarian Republic of Keventle is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Senate and Consul Favalo Zervas with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 13.076 billion Keventlions enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arusage. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Keventlion economy, worth a remarkable 4,161 trillion Verneses a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 318,260 Verneses, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,233,104 per year while the poor average 56,298, a ratio of 21.9 to 1.

One-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, political detractors refer to The Senate and Consul Favalo Zervas as 'that Bigtopian puppet', vital intelligence-gathering activities are often put on hold for Call of Honor tournaments, and factory workers offered 20-hour shifts are expected to thank their bosses for the wonderful opportunity. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Keventle's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Keventle is ranked 34,116th in the world and 1,584th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 69.14 on the Human Development Index.
