The Republic of Kelsyth is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Lena with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.661 billion Kelsythians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alnelenora. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Kelsythian economy, worth a remarkable 1,447 trillion Korunas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 255,635 Korunas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, rumor has it that Lena has won three lotteries in a row, school plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment, and atheism is seen as a prerequisite for political power. Crime is totally unknown. Kelsyth's national animal is the Hippogryph, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Truacism.

Kelsyth is ranked 1,352nd in the world and 37th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 98.05 on the Human Development Index.
