The Glorious Ogre Khanate of Kernen is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the mighty Supreme Khan Juk i'Behemoti with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, avowedly heterosexual populace, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.425 billion ogres are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the ogre city of Kernen. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.1%.

The frighteningly efficient an ogre economy, worth a remarkable 6,183 trillion dissenter's ears 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. 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 amazing 335,611 dissenter's ears, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,477,131 per year while the poor average 47,864, a ratio of 30.9 to 1.

No personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police, creating cardboard imitations of missiles is a new top-secret military project, disposable antiseptic wipes are considered a social necessity, and The mighty Supreme Khan Juk i'Behemoti often plays real life games of Tower Defense against hordes of angry villagers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Kernen's national animal is the Behemoth, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the State Church of Kernen.

Kernen is ranked 1,359th in the world and 17th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 12,978.06 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
