The Principality of Archipel Kerguelen is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, suspicion of poets, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 411 million Kerguelenois are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurore. The average income tax rate is 75.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Kerguelenois economy, worth 19.8 trillion Francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Pizza Delivery, and Trout Farming. Average income is 48,072 Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal, NationStates is now a popular brand of laxatives despite Max Barry's protests, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, and there's an aura of pseudoscience around academia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Archipel Kerguelen's national animal is the Macaroni Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Archipel Kerguelen is ranked 46,509th in the world and 616th in 10000 Islands for Smartest Citizens, with 40.2 quips per hour.
