The Libertarian Republic of Keventle is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Senate and Consul Favalo Zervas with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 14.493 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, liberal 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 4,584 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 316,320 Verneses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, citizens sell their moldy bread as homemade penicillin, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, and cane fights are a common sight in nursing homes. Crime is totally unknown. 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 276th in the world and 6th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 715.04 on the Hayek Index.
