The Socialist Commonwealth of Kelssek is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Parliament with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 30.326 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, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neorvins. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The very strong Kelssekian economy, worth a remarkable 3,433 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 113,224 loonies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here, unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, and Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping. 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 31,340th in the world and 862nd in The East Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 146.76 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
