The Empire of Khersonska is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 986 million Khersonskans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Херсон. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.7%.

The powerhouse Khersonskan economy, worth 97.5 trillion Dolars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 98,921 Dolars, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

Cars have been banned, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, it's not only teenagers who mess around with fake IDs, and military doctrine says not to open fire until you see the "beady little eyes" of Johnny Foreigner. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Khersonska's national animal is the leopard, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Khersonska is ranked 31,332nd in the world and 94th in Wintreath for Most Cultured, scoring 78 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
