The United Democracy of Kestir is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Athena Novak with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.612 billion Kestirians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fyrtevol. The average income tax rate is 50.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kestrin economy, worth 334 trillion Kestrin zirnas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 127,925 Kestrin zirnas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter, rumor has it that President Athena Novak has won three lotteries in a row, major cities are suffering under water rationing, and the "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kestir's national animal is the tiger.

Kestir is ranked 105,554th in the world and 23rd in CISB for Most Beautiful Environments, with 546.3 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
