Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of Klesh is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Cor Enladen with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 29.57 billion Kleshites are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gamorra. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Kleshite economy, worth an astonishing 22,112 trillion Corics a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 747,802 Corics, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,110,884 per year while the poor average 212,063, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.

All telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', kids are exceptionally good at digging holes, recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, and trespassers entering Cor Enladen's office are immediately vaporized. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Klesh's national animal is the River Dolphin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Diode.

Klesh is ranked 64,560th in the world and 26th in Eladen for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,838.13 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
