The Theocracy of Khazuul is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, disturbing lack of elderly people, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 352 million Khazuulians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Spirituality, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Khazuulian economy, worth 10.6 trillion Yuurks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, extremely specialized black market in Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 29,986 Yuurks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Women who miscarry have their death-masks displayed in the Wax Museum's "Sociopaths and Serial Killers Exhibit", government officials are held to the highest standard of morality, almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, and disability advocates are not amused that they are told to be dependent on Khazuulians's kindness. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Khazuul's national animal is the whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Khazuul is ranked 156,302nd in the world and 339th in Forest for Most Pro-Market, scoring -83.89 on the Rand Index.
