The Glorious Socialist Republic of Kesmaria is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme Glorious Revolutionary Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.11 billion Kesmarlians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kesmaripolis. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Kesmarlian economy, worth 159 trillion Karmias 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 a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. 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 143,926 Karmias, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nothing gets the party jumping like Supreme Glorious Revolutionary Leader specifying how high, Supreme Glorious Revolutionary Leader has more friends than ever before, the distracting décor lining the roads causes multiple pile-ups, and Kesmarlians incessantly needle their doctors for relief. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kesmaria's national animal is the Wilao Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Kesmaria is ranked 16,317th in the world and 14th in The Union Of Great Onionist Nations for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 55.69 Whatever.
