The Dominion of Keroth is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Prime Regulator with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.999 billion Kerothians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darkensky. The average income tax rate is 44.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kerothian economy, worth 799 trillion Kars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 199,953 Kars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, there's a hole in the heart of every Kerothian city, and the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop. Crime is totally unknown. Keroth's national animal is the Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Keroth is ranked 170,606th in the world and 6,427th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -64.89 on the Rand Index.
