The Republic of Kelsyth is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lena with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.078 billion Kelsythians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

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 average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Kelsythian economy, worth 992 trillion Korunas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 243,491 Korunas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay, boys who take just one date to the high school prom are called 'losers', and homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways. 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 Church of Light.

Kelsyth is ranked 18,754th in the world and 702nd in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,997.87 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
