The Glorious State of Khalite is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Father with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, strictly enforced bedtime, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 13.725 billion Khalite 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 prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. 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 7,769 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 566,085 Woolongs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government, the Khalite delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", otherwise healthy people are being sent to internment camps because they have VODAIS, and gigantic marble churches take up almost half the land area of small villages. 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 8,113th in the world and 32nd in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Authoritarian, with 3.54 Stalins.
