The United Commonwealth of Kelleran is a massive, genial nation, ruled by the National Citizen with a fair hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 2.701 billion Kellers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government prioritizes Industry, although Education, Welfare, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Augustus. The average income tax rate is 54.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Keller economy, worth 370 trillion ruths a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 137,000 ruths, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians are forced to wear portable lie detectors at all times, the government has pinkie-promised never to use its veto power except in an emergency, arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, and the nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kelleran's national animal is the beagle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kelleran is ranked 9,805th in the world and 1st in Dexter for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 12,019.65 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
