The Golden Chersonese of Khantari is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Dr Adrian West with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 5.378 billion Khans 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Raleigh. The average income tax rate is 79.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Khantarian economy, worth 458 trillion Amarrs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is 85,167 Amarrs, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

New safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Khantari to be bombproof, teachers regularly paddle unruly students, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, and atheists are heavily taxed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Khantari's national animal is the Black Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Islam.

Khantari is ranked 94,291st in the world and 3rd in Zecrarth for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 5.36 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
