The Republic of Kelsyth is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Lena with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.044 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, 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 980 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 242,469 Korunas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bike rage is all the rage, Kelsythians submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card, third world countries are rich in "I Love Alnelenora" t-shirts, and piracy is the nation's most popular pastime. 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 1,815th in the world and 180th in The East Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 88 Valid Endorsements.
