The Holy Empire of Klesh is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Cor Enladen with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 25.203 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.

Frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines, and hairdressers are among those who have disappeared overnight. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Klesh's national animal is the Dolphin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Diode, and its currency is the Coric.

Klesh is ranked 38th in Eladen and 114,361st in the world for Most Godforsaken, with -754 Dawkins.
