The Europa Centurian Kollektiv of Kerbal Kind is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by AR3S-4 with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation.

The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 220,960 GeopBrontoYottaKiloPetaExabytes of Data, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, citizens who don't meet government health standards are whisked away never to be seen again, and tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kerbal Kind's national animal is the Super Duper Slav, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kerbal Kind is ranked 44,622nd in the world and 1st in The Collective Hivemind of the Kerbals for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 4,430.83 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
