The Socialist Commonwealth of Kelssek is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Dominique Drapeau with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 22.057 billion enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neorvins. The average income tax rate is 98%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
The government is avowedly atheist, children are raised bilingual from an early age, the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kelssek's national animal is the polar bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the loonie.
