The Armed Republic of Keltische is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Walter Kelt with an iron fist, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.649 billion Keltischeans are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sprague City. The average income tax rate is 87.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Keltischean economy, worth a remarkable 1,370 trillion ounces a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 294,720 ounces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR, a nation-wide cull of wombats is in effect, unemployed accountants keep double-entry ledgers of their benefit claims, and deli patrons examine their roast beef for undetonated explosives. Crime is relatively low. Keltische's national animal is the wombat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Science.

Keltische is ranked 10,765th in the world and 103rd in The Communist Bloc for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 11,435.09 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
