The Holy Empire of Klesh is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Cor Enladen with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 25.55 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.

Military service is compulsory, the government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers, daisy chain gangs plant flowers and pick up litter, and a large percentage of the poor live from cradle to grave in subterranean wage slavery. 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 34th in Eladen and 92,634th in the world for Nudest, with 76 Cheeks per Square Mile.
