The Retired Blue Empire of KhanterWinters is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Khanter W Molchaniye with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.411 billion Khanterians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of KhanterLand. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 47.5%.

The powerhouse Khanterian economy, worth 430 trillion Cookies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Retail, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 97,677 Cookies, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

The Khanterian war navy contains an oddly large number of luxury yachts and cruise liners, the government's new 'Crime Can Fight Itself' policy appears to be backfiring rather badly, pregnant hitchhikers with signs requesting rides to "competent care" are a common sight on Khanterian roads, and Khanter W Molchaniye's new android secretary is the latest media darling. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. KhanterWinters's national animal is the Werewolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Worship of Khanter.

KhanterWinters is ranked 155,401st in the world and 6,773rd in the West Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 44.79 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
