The Holy Empire of Klesh is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Cor Enladen with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 24.79 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gamorra. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

The military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies, 'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favourite drink, the Great Klesh Desert is reputedly the most uninhabitable place in the region, and invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Klesh's national animal is the Dolphin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, its national religion is Diode, and its currency is the Coric.

Klesh is ranked 34th in Eladen and 112,228th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring -122 on the Enoch Index.
