The Kingdom of Zelkia is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, rampant corporate plagiarism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.597 billion Zelkians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 16.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Zelkian economy, worth 85.3 trillion Aths a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 53,422 Aths, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The monarch's main official duty is christening ships, the government pours millions of Aths into rehabilitation programs annually, tourists often cite 'hiding money in an off-shore banking account' as their main reason to visit the nation, and the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Zelkia's national animal is the Wild Stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Zelkia is ranked 56,921st in the world and 95th in New Western Empire for Rudest Citizens, with 64.99 Insults Per Minute.
