The Federation of Khardsland is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by National Worker's Council with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.158 billion Khardslanders love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Petershaven. The average income tax rate is 86.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Khardslander economy, worth 357 trillion khards a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 113,325 khards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jaywalking will put an end to a family tree, a PhD just ain't what it used to be, asthmatics can now suffer the effects of polluting chimneys from further away than ever before, and people who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Khardsland's national animal is the altergeisse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Khardsland is ranked 208,759th in the world and 396th in The Communist Bloc for Most Devout, with 13.33 prayers per hour.
