The Republic of Kelsyth is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Lena with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, national health service, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.854 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 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 1,761 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 256,954 Korunas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, children who display even minimal sporting aptitude are immediately assigned a personal trainer, and political detractors refer to Lena as 'that Bigtopian puppet'. 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 233,444th in the world and 8,783rd in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -16.91 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
