The Federal Republic of Kelshine is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Prime Minister with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.331 billion Kelshineans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Marithia. The average income tax rate is 82.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kelshinean economy, worth 794 trillion florins a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 148,984 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ministers browse Alright! magazine for fashion tips, defense lawyers suggestively note to juries how flagrantly happy victims were, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, and the nation's prisons are touted as the best weight loss programs money can't buy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kelshine's national animal is the mouse-like hamster, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kelshine is ranked 165,213th in the world and 5,629th in the South Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 26,519.2 Standard Monetary Units.
