The Federal Republic of Khaledonia is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, avowedly heterosexual populace, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 272 million Khaledonians 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, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ceiba. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.3%.

The powerhouse Khaledonian economy, worth 28.5 trillion florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 104,625 florins, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Good-looking doctors are obliged by law to give foot rubs to Leader, people who do not complete their community service are sentenced to more community service, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, and modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Khaledonia's national animal is the Khaledian reindeer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Khaledonia is ranked 150,866th in the world and 16th in Selene for Smartest Citizens, with 27.16 quips per hour.
