The Holy Empire of Khoronzon is a huge, safe nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 412 million Khoronzonites 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shugara. The average income tax rate is 79.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Khoronzonite economy, worth 56.4 trillion offerings 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 Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. 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 an impressive 136,966 offerings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, five-hundred-twenty-five-thousand-six-hundred revivals is how theatre-goers measure a year, the government snoops on private internet connections, and gambling is outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Khoronzon's national animal is the underling, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Khoronzon is ranked 85,893rd in the world and 15th in Psychotic Dictatorships for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,827.36 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
