The Socialist People's Republic of Kestvala is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by tbd with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, triple-decker prams, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.907 billion Kestvalighren 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kesjaia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 81.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Kestvalighr economy, worth a remarkable 2,068 trillion Kestvalighr Dinars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 189,619 Kestvalighr Dinars, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, tours to see the 'wild men of the mountains' are popular with tourists from the big cities, the sun now sets on the Kestvalighr Empire, and city workers have declared that rolling markets aren't good for business after all. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kestvala's national animal is the Fennec Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Kestvalighr Pantheon.

Kestvala is ranked 14,702nd in the world and 3rd in The Coalition of Democratic Nations for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 6,124.04 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
