“Unum Cum Virtute Multorum”
|Category: Democratic Socialists|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: The East Pacific
The Socialist Commonwealth of Kelssek is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Dominique Drapeau with an even hand, and notable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 22.684 billion Kelssekians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
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 99%. 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.
