The Protectorate of Khapla is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The quiet, industrious population of 691 million Khaplans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Khaplan economy, worth 15.3 trillion DA BOOTIES a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 22,191 DA BOOTIES, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, and 4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Khapla's national animal is the Blue Footed Booby, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Khapla is ranked 21,976th in the world and 578th in Lazarus for Most Income Equality, scoring 77.47 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
