“Unum Cum Virtute Multorum”
|Category: Left-wing Utopia|
Regional Influence: Minnow
Location: The East Pacific
The Socialist Commonwealth of Kelssek is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Dominique Drapeau with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 23.23 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.
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.
Crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, prison visits increase substantially during election years, euthanasia is legal, and a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway. 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.
