Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Benevolent Overlord of Klaatu is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its enslaved workforce, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.961 billion Klaatuans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Klaatu City. The average income tax rate is 78.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Klaatuan economy, worth 467 trillion nons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 39,092 nons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Councils up and down the country wrangle over legal matters, fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, and government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Klaatu's national animal is the ibex, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Klaatu is ranked 85,807th in the world and 3rd in Vectis for Most Devout, with 16.18 Prayers Per Hour.
