Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of Klesh is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Cor Enladen with an iron fist, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 29.018 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 21,585 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. Average income is a breathtaking 743,851 Corics, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,596,363 per year while the poor average 155,020, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.

The entire retail industry has been replaced by online delivery services, obesity is a thing of the past due to the nation's sickening cuisine, bloodthirsty zealots regularly participate in the Friday Night Stoning of Adulterers, and builders spend more time negotiating "tasteful architecture" than on actual construction. 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 242nd in the world and 4th in Eladen for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 17,127.38 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
