The Spring Break Wonderland of Keronika is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Sir Daniel with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.974 billion Keronikans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Keronikan economy, worth a remarkable 8,689 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 395,462 pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,340,696 per year while the poor average 86,131, a ratio of 15.6 to 1.

Many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators, fiscal policy hawks decry the sizable "panem et circenses" fund added to the public budget, parents are really careful to pick the right gun for their kids' birthdays, and the construction of massive skyscrapers seems to be the result of Keronika's mid-life crisis. Crime is totally unknown. Keronika's national animal is the cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Charismatic Wiccan Scientists.

Keronika is ranked 856th in the world and 2nd in The Kingdom of Great Britain for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 101.02 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
