The Socialist Commonwealth of Kelssek is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Parliament with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 34.147 billion Kelsseks hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neorvins. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The thriving Kelssekian economy, worth a remarkable 4,083 trillion thalers a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,589 thalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parliament is frequently seen begging critics to stop insulting the government, cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, politicians who misplace decimal points on expense reports are fired for gross incompetence, and on-duty Air Kelssek flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kelssek's national animal is the polar bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kelssek is ranked 13,900th in the world and 393rd in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 82.04 on the Human Development Index.
