The Ghost of Khangates Past of Bhikkustan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Khang Surevi with an iron fist, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, zero percent divorce rate, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 8.985 billion Bhikkustanis are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Samadhi. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bhikkustani economy, worth 963 trillion Ropejs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 107,213 Ropejs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers, frat-house partying has become the national pastime, criminals are often a few steps ahead of law enforcement, and God took rock and roll from you, took rock and roll from everyone. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bhikkustan's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Bhikkustan is ranked 744th in the world and 3rd in The Western Isles for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 9,366.07 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
