Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Holy Empire of Klesh is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Cor Enladen with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.27 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 Kleshite economy, worth an astonishing 18,536 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 705,612 Corics, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,496,700 per year while the poor average 80,741, a ratio of 43.3 to 1.

Oracles predict landslide victories for Cor Enladen for the next 50 years, manual labourers must be willing to have cybernetic limbs to get a job, citizens who fail to follow the official national religion are executed, and computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails. 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 38th in Eladen and 143,024th in the world for Nicest Citizens, with -1,759 Smiles Per Hour (net).
