The Dictatorship of Killington is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Sir Leader Von Kill with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 11.315 billion Killingtonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Killington City Nr 21. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Killingtonian economy, worth a remarkable 3,021 trillion Big Monies a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 267,066 Big Monies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, the police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee, and the government seizes all major gold finds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Killington's national animal is the Chupacabra, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Leaderism.

Killington is ranked 26,016th in the world and 64th in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Most Cultured, scoring 81 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
