The Libertarian Republic of Keventle is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Senate and Consul Favalo Zervas with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 14.083 billion Keventlions enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arusage. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Keventlion economy, worth a remarkable 4,480 trillion Verneses a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 318,150 Verneses, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,184,653 per year while the poor average 59,972, a ratio of 19.8 to 1.

The government response to disaster victims starving for bread is "let them eat stale cake", pet owners make sure their dogs wear diapers, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, and hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have. Crime is almost non-existent. Keventle's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Keventle is ranked 1,625th in the world and 78th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 318,150.65 Standard Monetary Units.
