Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Queen's State of Kellestine is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Governor with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 21.778 billion Kellestineans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 79.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Kellestinean economy, worth 101 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 4,650 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

None has been named as Kellestine's national religion, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, and The Governor has just been declared ruler of Kellestine in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kellestine's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none.

Kellestine is ranked 8,262nd in the world and 354th in Ancient Lands for Most Extreme, scoring 35.94 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
