Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Glorious State of Khalite is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Father with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 12.676 billion Khalite 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, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Janjing. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Khalite economy, worth a remarkable 6,969 trillion Woolongs 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 Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. 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 a breathtaking 549,814 Woolongs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter, it is common to still see adults with training wheels on their bikes, pigeon fanciers are depressed since all their charges have gone off the twig... they've kicked the bucket... they've shuffled off their mortal coils run down the curtain and joined the choir invisible... they are EX-PIGEONS, and newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Khalite's national animal is the Slime, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Political Orthodoxy.

Khalite is ranked 150,778th in the world and 149th in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 8.86 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
