The United Commonwealth of Kelleran is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by the National Citizen with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 1.162 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Augustus. The average income tax rate is 58.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Keller economy, worth 141 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 major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 121,675 ruths, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Gossip magazines have pictures of the National Citizen sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, chickens roam the streets freely, and civil servants are no longer allowed to cross their t's. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kelleran's national animal is the beagle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none.

Kelleran is ranked 8,195th in the world and 1st in Dexter for Most Inclusive, scoring 200.58 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
