The Holy Empire of Klesh is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Cor Enladen with an iron fist, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 25.519 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.

Several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, nudity is frowned upon, much of Klesh's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, and bloodthirsty zealots regularly participate in the Friday Night Stoning of Adulterers. 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 8th in Eladen and 325th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 521 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
