The Darn of Keirah Amber is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 17.96 billion Keirah Amberians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 84.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Keirah Amberian economy, worth 78.5 trillion lire a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 4,368 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All industry is owned and run by the government, voting is compulsory, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and a dictator has seized power and outlawed elections. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Keirah Amber's national animal is the green turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Keirah Amber is ranked 107,895th in the world and 13th in The Cuckoos Egg for Most Armed, with 0.28 Weapons Per Person.
