The Dictatorship of Khoveria is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 558 million Khoverians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 52.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Khoverian economy, worth 18.2 trillion deniers 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, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Pizza Delivery. 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 32,541 deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Adults have never outgrown their fear of monsters, there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, the full title of Hon Leader Vcte Mgve MF DKLM GCKE runs to several pages, and the nation is wading into dangerous waters. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Khoveria's national animal is the kangaroo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Khoveria is ranked 180,177th in the world and 171st in The Western Isles for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 89.52 Tourists Per Hour.
