The Socialist Commonwealth of Kelssek is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 34.958 billion Kelsseks 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, 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 95.8%.

The powerhouse Kelssekian economy, worth a remarkable 4,319 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 common. Average income is an impressive 123,555 thalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists attempt to convince the Hardship Fund that their unmade bed is a masterpiece, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Leader to meetings with foreign heads of state, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, and modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes. 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 4,112th in the world and 77th in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 2,297.66519616 Days.
