The Holy Empire of Klesh is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Cor Enladen with an iron fist, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 25.316 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 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 police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers, female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, and Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed. 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 4th in Eladen and 53rd in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 838 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
