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 renowned for its closed borders, deadly medical pandemics, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.151 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 18,480 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 706,697 Corics, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,924,800 per year while the poor average 35,159, a ratio of 140 to 1.

Newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent, birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire, governments opposing Klesh are beset by rebels, and the commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Klesh with a very polite populace. 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 12th in Eladen and 2,017th in the world for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 12 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
