The Memocratic Republic of Kektus is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Donald Trump with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service and suspicion of poets. The cynical, devout population of 4.941 billion Kekti are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Top Kek City. The average income tax rate is 40.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Kektus economy, worth 170 trillion kek coins a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 34,587 kek coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is reining in public spending, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, children who display even minimal sporting aptitude are immediately assigned a personal trainer, and Calvinball players are lost for days as they wander the vast halls of their new academies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kektus's national animal is the penguin and its national religion is Memeism.

Kektus is ranked 172,084th in the world and 13th in State Awesome for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -4.9 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
