The Socialist Republic of Kergstan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Okja Nerkutoa with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.862 billion Kergstanis enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Almatar. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Kergstani economy, worth a remarkable 1,640 trillion Tares a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 138,315 Tares, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, political detractors refer to Okja Nerkutoa as 'that Bigtopian puppet', the weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme, and community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kergstan's national animal is the Ankili dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kergstan is ranked 267,972nd in the world and 1,902nd in The Communist Bloc for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -598.64 on the Hayek Index.
