The Metropolitan Desert of Khrrck is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by its council with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 37.726 billion Wyrms enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Exit. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient 'Khrrck economy, worth a remarkable 8,695 trillion shards a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 230,499 shards, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.

Court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, judicial torture is outsourced overseas, and Khrrck isn't what it used to be. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Khrrck's national animal is the ruffled ice-snake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is sorcery.

Khrrck is ranked 151,263rd in the world and 13th in Space Sector RPRA for Most Extreme, scoring 14.13 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
