The Federal Republic of Kelshine is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The President with an even hand, and notable for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.389 billion Kelshineans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Marithia. The average income tax rate is 79.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Kelshinean economy, worth 306 trillion florins a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 128,375 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, farmers have taken to hunting billionaires who encroach on their land, and politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kelshine's national animal is the mouse-like hamster, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
