“Unum Cum Virtute Multorum”
|Category: Liberal Democratic Socialists|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: The East Pacific
The Socialist Commonwealth of Kelssek is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Dominique Drapeau with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 22.816 billion Kelssekians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
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.
Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet. 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.
Kelssek is ranked 410th in The East Pacific and 21,988th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 138 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
