The United Socialist States of Keld is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 497 million Keldians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Mountain. The average income tax rate is 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Keldian economy, worth 50.3 trillion Red Manas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 101,295 Red Manas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The news is showing footage of Leader bullying an old man to the point of tears, prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals, kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, and online weather reports are predicting five years of glorious sunshine for Keld. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Keld's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Keld is ranked 8,358th in the world and 430th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.55 percentage of bribes refused.
