The Holy Empire of Kinky Bootlaces is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Supreme Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.37 billion Kinky Bootlacesians, 2.352 billion of whom are zombies, 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Heel City. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The very strong Kinky Bootlacesian economy, worth 310 trillion oons 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, highly specialized black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 100,297 oons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's best to decline if Supreme Leader offers to buy a round of drinks, scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, it takes all playtime for children to locate their friends among two hundred identical heads, and produce labels read 'may contain traces of food'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kinky Bootlaces's national animal is the platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Leaderism.

Kinky Bootlaces is ranked 214,750th in the world and 6,124th in the Rejected Realms for Most Avoided, scoring 0.44 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
