The Glorious State of Khalite is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Father with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, vat-grown people, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 18.922 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 Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. 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 an astonishing 13,532 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 Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. 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 715,163 Woolongs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, the crispy fried liver of a Lobster is prized as a tasty treat by vagrants, immigrants complain that natives keep coming over and taking their jobs, and citizens no longer take selfies with their dead relatives at funerals. 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 Lobster, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Political Orthodoxy.

Khalite is ranked 174th in the world and 3rd in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 56,537.76 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
