The Holy Empire of Klesh is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Cor Enladen with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 24.197 billion 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.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, owning a tractor is widely regarded as an essential prerequisite to most government positions, and universities are populated by the spawn of the upper classes. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Klesh's national animal is the Dolphin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Diode, and its currency is the Coric.

Klesh is ranked 1st in Eladen and 1st in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 4,003 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
