The Libertarian Republic of Keventle is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Senate and Consul Favalo Zervas with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 14.05 billion Keventlions enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, with Industry and Defense also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arusage. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Keventlion economy, worth a remarkable 4,467 trillion Verneses a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 317,964 Verneses, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,183,959 per year while the poor average 59,936, a ratio of 19.8 to 1.

Ratings for schools' curricula range from 'Pure as the Driven Snow' to 'Late Night TV', the inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only, appendix transplant figures have recently doubled, and Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy. Crime is almost non-existent. Keventle's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Keventle is ranked 1,904th in the world and 92nd in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 9,343.11 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
