The Theocracy of The Peoples Republic of Kent is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Edwin Poots with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 9.965 billion Kentians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, moralistic, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gillingham. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Kentian economy, worth a remarkable 1,758 trillion Pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. Average income is an impressive 176,455 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist, belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace', and no one engages in 'locker room talk' any more. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Peoples Republic of Kent's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Peoples Republic of Kent is ranked 205,038th in the world and 447th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -39.17 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
