The Republic of Elykyellek is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Eliza Kierke with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.078 billion Yellekans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Environment, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kelley City. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Yellekan economy, worth a remarkable 2,062 trillion Yellekan Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 170,799 Yellekan Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Elykyellek as a reminder of their "special relationship", police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers, and artists are pillars of society. Crime is totally unknown. Elykyellek's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Elykyellek is ranked 19,378th in the world and 1st in The World League for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 258.66 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
