Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Holy Empire of Klesh is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Cor Enladen with an iron fist, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.457 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 18,760 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 709,098 Corics, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,856,802 per year while the poor average 67,029, a ratio of 57.5 to 1.

A cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, electrocution deaths among computer technicians are at an all-time high, and homosexuality is a crime punishable by death. 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 33rd in Eladen and 140,615th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -613 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
