The Dictatorship of Khalkortostan is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its enslaved workforce, infamous sell-swords, and compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 286 million Khalkortostanis 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, while Welfare is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nakhbyrdabad. The average income tax rate is 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Khalkortostanian economy, worth 4.37 trillion Smyrtrs 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, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. 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 15,266 Smyrtrs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pootling steam trains carry delighted tourists and frustrated businessmen from city to city at a snail's pace, Khalkortostan has designated Nakhbyrdabad as its capital city, gun ownership is compulsory, and "What's the Frequency, Leader?" is a favorite phrase of backyard radio broadcasters when interrupting official diplomatic channels. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Khalkortostan's national animal is the Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Khalkortostan is ranked 242,714th in the world and 8th in Der Nationenkonvent for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 37.41 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
