The Borderlands of Khattarwildes is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its digital currency, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 470 million Khattarwildesians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 34.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Khattarwildesian economy, worth 27.4 trillion florins 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Soda Sales. Average income is 58,365 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, it's always rabbit season, the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, and Khattarwildes has designated Khattarwildes City as its capital city. Crime is totally unknown. Khattarwildes's national animal is the flying squirrel.

Khattarwildes is ranked 90,142nd in the world and 23rd in Hiyamashu for Most Developed, scoring 57.56 on the Human Development Index.
