The Republic of Elykyellek is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Eliza Kierke with a fair hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.568 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 Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kelley City. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Yellekan economy, worth a remarkable 2,825 trillion Yellekan Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 170,509 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 126,157th in the world and 2nd in The World League for Most Pro-Market, scoring 39.33 on the Rand Index.
