The Socialist Commonwealth of Kelssek is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Dominique Drapeau with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, daily referendums, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 25.596 billion Kelssekians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neorvins. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.
The strong Kelssekian economy, worth a remarkable 2,662 trillion loonies a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 104,028 loonies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
An increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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.
