The Holy Empire of Klesh is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Cor Enladen with an iron fist, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 25.905 billion Kleshites are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, 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 Kleshian economy, worth an astonishing 18,435 trillion Corics a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is a breathtaking 711,670 Corics, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,967,562 per year while the poor average 63,731, a ratio of 62.3 to 1.

Bicyclists are banned from major roads, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, and the workforce is almost entirely made up of slave labour. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Klesh's national animal is the Dolphin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Diode.

Klesh is ranked 2nd in Eladen and 39th in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 20 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
