The Two Candles of Evergreen Keys is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Keeper with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.641 billion Keysians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great Keys. The average income tax rate is 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Keysian economy, worth 184 trillion keys a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,232 keys, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ministers browse Alright! magazine for fashion tips, child labor has been outlawed, angry citizens complain that there isn't enough geographical diversity on the new banknotes, and money can't buy happiness but it can buy immunity to prosecution. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Evergreen Keys's national animal is the keysian dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Evergreen Keys is ranked 235,680th in the world and 1,139th in Europe for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -14.78 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
