The United Socialist States of Keld is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Grand Warlord Radha with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, daily referendums, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.354 billion Keldians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Mountain. The average income tax rate is 89.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Keldian economy, worth 281 trillion Red Manas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 119,386 Red Manas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's nuclear defence policy is to "turn the other cheek", rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements, the song 'They Got an Awful Lot of Coffee in Keld' is a smash hit, and Keld is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Keld's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Book of Keld.

Keld is ranked 263,612th in the world and 12,637th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.8 crimes per hour.
