The Republic of Elykyellek is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Eliza Kierke with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.822 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, although Industry, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. 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 2,531 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 2,084th in the world and 1st in The World League for Most Cultured, scoring 222 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
