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 daily referendums, public floggings, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 11.492 billion Kentians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, 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 2,078 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 180,831 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, customs officers pretend not to hear shouts of "HELP LET ME OUT!" emerging from diplomatic bags, and a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts. 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 245,637th in the world and 472nd in Forest for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -44.86 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
