The Queen's State of Kingscote is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 14.561 billion Kingscoteans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small government is dominated by the Department of Industry, with Spirituality and Welfare not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.0%.

The thriving Kingscotean economy, worth 455 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Soda Sales industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 31,310 betales, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 90,678 per year while the poor average 8,567, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

Voting is voluntary, the tenet of free speech is held dear, and Kingscote has designated Capital Heights as its capital city. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Kingscote's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kingscote is ranked 157,419th in the world and 6th in South Australia for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 12.95 Effective Tax Rate.
