The United Republic of East Klent is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Cash Willows with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, complete lack of prisons, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 29.148 billion Klentians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Williamsburg DK. The average income tax rate is 94.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Klentian economy, worth a remarkable 6,483 trillion Klentoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 222,424 Klentoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Money grows on trees, the government's stance on marriage is 'Let Klentians marry themselves', one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, and school kids who pretend to drive imaginary cars get a social worker and a police observer assigned to them. Crime is totally unknown. East Klent's national animal is the Qua Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

East Klent is ranked 16,594th in the world and 3rd in The Heartland for Best Weather, with 177 meters of sunlight.
