The Federation of North Keyton is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 361 million North Keytonians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greyport. The average income tax rate is 43.1%.

The all-consuming North Keytonian economy, worth 33.5 trillion Celestias a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 92,871 Celestias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

A shocking number of estate planners are beneficiaries of their clients' wills, celebrity wrestlers thumb their nose at due process, the Foreign Ministry thinks an eye for an eye is a blindingly good idea, and commuters often break into synchronised para-para dancing for no reason at all. Crime is totally unknown. North Keyton's national animal is the Blue Jay, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

North Keyton is ranked 31,715th in the world and 8th in The Potato Union for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,541.51 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
