The Socialist Commonwealth of Kelssek is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Dominique Drapeau with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, rampant corporate plagiarism, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 25.307 billion Kelssekians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
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 96.5%.
The Kelssekian economy, worth a remarkable 2,454 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 97,000 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.
