The Red Menace of Kleomenes is a colossal, economically powerful nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 9.082 billion Kleomenesians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Healthcare and Social Welfare are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Patchouli. The average income tax rate is 96%. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Information Technology.

Truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kleomenes's national animal is the Flying Guppy, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the Sand Dollar.

Kleomenes is ranked 513th in Osiris and 13,454th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 23.7 Insults Per Minute (net).
