Founding Nation

The Federated States of Kedalfax, commonly referred to as Kedalfax is an environmentally stunning nation, located on the western side of South Simtropolis. Kedalfax is a member of the NSUN and the International Extradition Treaty organizations, among others.

Kedalfaxians, as they are known, are generally a socially libertarian people. Although certainly not the most libertarian nation in the world citizens and foreigners enjoy great social and economic freedom.

Kedalfax participates in regional affairs, including high involvement in the introduction of regional standards. Kedalfax is currently leading the push for an intraregional, intercontinental highway.

The Kedalfaxian Department of Defence focuses on maintaining strong naval power, though cuts in funding have made this harder.


Kedalfax was discovered by Dutch explorer Peiter Kedaalf in 1703. It became a Dutch colony, known variously as Kedaalfiea and Kedaalfa. By the mid 1800s, the name had evolved to Kedalfax.

In 1810, the colony was taken by the British. In the late 1891, the Dutch attempted to re-capture Kedalfax. The revolutionaries used this to revolt. This revolt soon became the Mid-Simtropolis War. After the war, Kedalfax and the other nations in the area agreed on mutual boarders and sovereignty. Kedalfax maintained peace until World War II.

The 1920s saw a large increase in the economy. Stock prices skyrocketed between 1923 and 1929. In October of 1929, the US stock market failed. News of the market failing reached Kedalfax on Sunday, October 27, 1929. At first, only slight drops were seen in the KSX averages. The next day, prices seemed to level back off again until late in the day, when news of the size of the US Market crash reached Kedalfax. Within the last two hours of the market day, the KSX average dropped by over K$250,000. This was the start of Kedalfax's Great Depression. Despite much quicker reactions by the government, the Kedalfaxian economy still followed trends of the American economy.

In late 1929, ___ became the leader of Brechenlass. ___ was a fascist who promised to bring back the glory of Brechenlass' First Empire. ___ soon gained control of much of the area around Brechenlass, including much of what are now Eisophca, Saidercray, and the Schnauzerlands.

Brechenlass allied with the Axis Powers during World War II, and Kedalfax allied with the Allied Powers. In 1941, following the Brechenlasian attack on Frederick Bay, Kedalfax joined the war. Kedalfax focused mostly on Brechenlass, but also sent aid and troops to the European front. In 1945, Brechenlass surrendered. Kedalfax helped to set up an democratic government and sent large amounts of aid.

Since World War II, Kedalfax has not declared war, nor had war declared on it. With the exception of some terrorist attacks and retaliations, Kedalfax has been a pacifistic nation.

Kedalfax's climate is generally temperate, with the northern areas slightly warmer due to the warming effects of the gulf.



In the last census, Kedalfax's population was stated as 20,852,203 citizens. An additional 3.2 million non-citizens live in Kedalfax, mostly in the cities. An estimated 1.2 million Kedalfaxian citizens live in other nations.

Kedalfax is not very ethnically diverse. Though major immigration between 1946 and 1975 did increase the ethnic spread, the nation remains mostly Caucasian. Below is a table comparing different ethnic percentages inthe 1944, 1976, and 2004 censuses.

Life expectancy

Life expectancy in Kedalfax is high and currently stands at an average of about 79 years. Kedalfax has free health care for citizens, and emergency care for non-citizens and visitors.

Sex and gender

Kedalfax has 1.241 males to every female. However, in recent years the amount of girls born has exceeded that of boys and it is expected that should the trend continue, there will be an equal amount of females and males in Kedalfax by 2015. A reversal of the current situation (with thusly 1.022 females for every male) would then most likely occur by 2020 or 2021.

Same-sex marriages have been allowed under the national law since 1980, however in some areas they are looked down upon.

In 2004, the government legalized the changing of gender in legal matters. The operations had been legal since their invention, however until 2004 the gender on the person's birth certificate, driver's license, and other legal documents could not be changed.

Urban-rural distribution and socioeconomic strata

62.4% of Kedalfaxians live in areas classified urban, 38.8% live in suburban areas, and the remainder live in rural areas.


Kedalfax is known for its natural beauty, and the art inspired by it. Kedalfax has not been a large contributor to the modern art trend; its contributions toward art tend to favor more traditional landscapes and portraits.

Music out of Kedalfax has also not changed much after the mid 1970s. The most popular band is K, which has been on the forefront of culture since the mid 1990s.

The food in Kedalfax has a reputation for being dull and boring. This reputation comes from before Kedalfax's immigration waves in the 1950s until the 1970s. These waves brought in interesting food from Pacitalia, China, Germany, and Mexico, as well as many other nations. While perhaps not the most interesting or diverse cuisine in the world, Kedalfaxian cuisine has become worth a try. See Also: Kedalfaxian English, K, Kedalfaxian Cuisine

Indigenous Groups

At the onset of European inhabitance of Kedalfax, there were a few native tribes spread throughout the area. None of them exist in significant numbers, although some practices and traditions are still held.


Kedalfax's economy is a slightly socialized form of capitalism. Services like water, power, and public transportation are government-owned, but sometimes contract out to private companies.
