The Socialist Commonwealth of Kelssek is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Prime Minister with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 36.207 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 96.1%.

The powerhouse Kelssek economy, worth a remarkable 4,526 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 125,008 thalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Prime Minister can often be seen hanging around playgrounds chatting with the kids, incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables, it is technically inaccurate to call the dead 'worm food', and lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post. 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 2,944th in the world and 164th in The East Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 30,912 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
