The Dominion of The Bookkeeper is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Librarian with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 12.358 billion Keepers are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, pro-business, 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 Eyeglasses. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.9%.

The thriving Bookkeeperian economy, worth 889 trillion Pens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Average income is 71,949 Pens, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 246,842 per year while the poor average 15,392, a ratio of 16.0 to 1.

Televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events, The Librarian has just been declared ruler of The Bookkeeper in an international press conference, sex offenders find themselves cut off from the ability to repeat their crimes, and Christianity has been named as The Bookkeeper's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force. The Bookkeeper's national animal is the Siver Fish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Bookkeeper is ranked 38,344th in the world and 1st in The Cemetery for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 246,842 Standard Monetary Units.
