The Railway Ridden Nation of Lead Keion is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Kieran White with an iron fist, and renowned for its lack of airports, pith helmet sales, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.437 billion Lead Keionians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Starthlam. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.8%.

The all-consuming Lead Keionian economy, worth 509 trillion Keionis a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 148,165 Keionis, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 547,640 per year while the poor average 28,257, a ratio of 19.4 to 1.

The government prefers to kill off its enemies by peaceful means, workers tend to schedule naps during all-hands meetings, the newest East Lebatuckese coins have "long live East Lebatuck" on heads and "death to Lead Keion" on tails, and murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lead Keion's national animal is the Great Western Railway Pannier Tank, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Lead Keion is ranked 181,474th in the world and 110th in Abydos for Most Armed, with 0.24 Weapons Per Person.
