The Empire of Kekwland is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 323 million Kekwlanders are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Spirituality and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of pol. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.2%.

The powerhouse Kekwlandian economy, worth 27.9 trillion Keks a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 86,283 Keks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 272,711 per year while the poor average 20,843, a ratio of 13.1 to 1.

Warfare increasingly resembles a video game, the nanny industry has had a boom after maternity leave was recently banned, eight-year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas, and being able to unblock a u-bend pipe is considered a universally essential skill. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Kekwland's national animal is the Pepe, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Kekwland is ranked 43,452nd in the world and 1st in Bloopsjooj for Largest Black Market, with 3.54 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
