Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Socialist Commonwealth of Kelssek is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Parliament with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 28.688 billion Kelssekians 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, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neorvins. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The very strong Kelssekian economy, worth a remarkable 3,254 trillion loonies 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 113,458 loonies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The endangered saltwater humpback polar bear is only seen in captivity programs, recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, the World Socialist Commonwealth Games have been won again by Kelssek as no other country cares enough to compete, and the tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists. 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 177,427th in the world and 7,823rd in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -27.71 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
