The Empire of Ghanhayel is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Tazio III with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 12.72 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 aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kaidohayok. The average income tax rate is 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Ghanhayelian economy, worth a remarkable 1,946 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 153,033 Arodayens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Children who believe in the tooth fairy are frequently shipped off to Bigtopia, Ghanhayel is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, the fate of the world literally rests on Emperor Tazio III's fingers, and citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Ghanhayel. 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 4,347th in the world and 3rd in The Crown Federation of Recon for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 2,775.71 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
