The Holy Empire of Kinky Bootlaces is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Supreme Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.824 billion Kinky Bootlacesians 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 — prioritizes Law & Order, although Administration, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Heel City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.2%.

The strong Kinky Bootlacesian economy, worth 164 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 large, well-organized, quite 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 90,433 oons, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

There is no such thing as an innocent fling in the Kinky Bootlacesian military, books are so highly regarded in Kinky Bootlaces that libraries are often revered as holy shrines, the recently unemployed can often be seen at the local homeless shelter, and minefields are being deployed along the border to discourage potential emigrants from trying to leave. 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 38,012th in the world and 979th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 224,352.17 Standard Monetary Units.
