The United Republic of East Klent is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Cash Willows with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 10.381 billion Klentians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Education, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Williamsburg DK. The average income tax rate is 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Tourism and Information Technology.

The government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, children deemed 'disorderly' or otherwise unfit for public schools are shipped off to military academies, government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet, and the tenet of free speech is held dear. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Klent's national animal is the Qua Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Klento.

East Klent is ranked 30th in The Heartland and 110,035th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -19 on the Hayek Index.
