The Free Land of Killmoor is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Hector Roversemmer with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.391 billion Killmoorians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Davido. The average income tax rate is 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Killmoorian economy, worth 364 trillion Berrieses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 67,682 Berrieses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Depression sinks in after each election when voters realize they are stuck with these people for years, the nation sends criminals home to think about what they did, orange is the new black for judicial robes, and a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an Air Brancaland flight has been offered asylum. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Killmoor's national animal is the RedTail Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is hullo.

Killmoor is ranked 144,062nd in the world and 4,047th in the Rejected Realms for Nudest, with 106.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
