The Republic of New Keighley is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 344 million New Keighleyians 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 relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Defense, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 18.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The strong New Keighleyian economy, worth 25.9 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 75,162 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Light entertainment isn't dead, the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, and local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Keighley's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
