The Kingdom of Zelkia is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.861 billion Zelkians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 36.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Zelkian economy, worth 125 trillion Aths a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of 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 43,876 Aths, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists often cite 'hiding money in an off-shore banking account' as their main reason to visit the nation, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, the government is well known for declaring war on other countries for suspected slights, and unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves. 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 228,723rd in the world and 204th in New Western Empire for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -8.6 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
