The Grand Intergalactic Empire of Keswickholt is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Grand Empress Rebecca with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless population of 6.519 billion Keswickholtians 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 Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of Keswickholt. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Keswickholtian economy, worth a remarkable 1,650 trillion Imperial Tokens a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 253,209 Imperial Tokens, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

Five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, autocrats are persona non grata, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Keswickholtians, 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. Keswickholt's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Deism.

Keswickholt is ranked 12,882nd in the world and 208th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 10,132.36 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
