Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Telkiderh koma of De Hork is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by a ikharul dede with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.422 billion arulshe 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.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of a aboderh ikhak. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient arulderh economy, worth a remarkable 4,577 trillion derhkhes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 400,791 derhkhes, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,298,253 per year while the poor average 33,676, a ratio of 68.2 to 1.

The government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, the hills are alive with the smell of burning flesh, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and prosecutors routinely call transplant doctors as 'expert witnesses' in burglary cases. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. De Hork's national animal is the bo'i borulukh, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Esheturborul Badit.

De Hork is ranked 559th in the world and 1st in toilet arsonist appreciation society for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 22,601.9 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
