The Republic of Kelsyth is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Lena with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, complete lack of prisons, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.902 billion Kelsythians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, 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 2,069 trillion Korunas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 261,931 Korunas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Money grows on trees, residents of houses built on a foundation of wishful thinking are prone to an odd sinking feeling, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, and with increasingly clear skies nobody seems to mind the electricity bill going through the roof. 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 Faewryni.

Kelsyth is ranked 1,633rd in the world and 54th in The East Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 522 Bank.
