The Theocracy of The Peoples Republic of Kent is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Edwin Poots with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, sprawling nuclear power plants, and daily referendums. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 10.35 billion Kentians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, moralistic, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gillingham. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Kentian economy, worth a remarkable 1,837 trillion Pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 177,537 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Small shoes often wash up on the beach, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, citizens re-mortgage their homes to buy lottery tickets, and the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Peoples Republic of Kent's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Peoples Republic of Kent is ranked 642nd in the world and 15th in Forest for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 3,248.47 Tourists Per Hour.
