The Rogue Nation of Kelvenir is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.08 billion Kelvenirians 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, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Public Transport. The average income tax rate is 49.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Kelvenirian economy, worth 21.1 trillion anarches 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 a slick, highly efficient black market in Tourism, Soda Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Book Publishing. 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 19,493 anarches, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

At least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Leader's wardrobe, the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, policemen regularly conduct midnight raids on closed donut shops to 'collect evidence', and Kelvenir recently decided against having a capital city. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kelvenir's national animal is the Black Cat.

Kelvenir is ranked 69,320th in the world and 36th in Barbaria for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 1,755.45 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
