The Holy Empire of Kkhano is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.51 billion Kkhanoans 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Syr Dárya. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Kkhanoan economy, worth 10.2 trillion Forints a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Tourism. Average income is 6,748 Forints, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prison walls have had to be modified to keep parkour-trained criminals from escaping, the nation is reliant on the principle of mutually assured destruction to maintain its security, Kkhano has designated Syr Dárya as its capital city, and elections are outlawed and a hairstylist has recently received a government appointment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kkhano's national animal is the Southern-Magyar serpent, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kkhano is ranked 202,907th in the world and 60th in Northern Utopia for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 314.69 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
