The Earth Republic of Kelmet is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Monroe with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 14.701 billion Kelians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elysium. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Kelian economy, worth a remarkable 3,117 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 212,036 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, in a fit of passion President Monroe has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, and 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Kelian Space Agency. Crime is totally unknown. Kelmet's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secular Christianity.

Kelmet is ranked 122,797th in the world and 7th in Ankh Mauta for Most Income Equality, scoring 17.27 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
