The Empire of Ghanhayel is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Tazio III with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, ubiquitous missile silos, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 14.988 billion Ghanhayelians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kaidohayok. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Ghanhayelian economy, worth a remarkable 2,787 trillion Arodayens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 185,969 Arodayens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal, and rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ghanhayel's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Ntoismsàyhi.

Ghanhayel is ranked 171,398th in the world and 6th in The Crown Federation of Recon for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -4.65 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
