The Innocent Sovereign Empire of Klee is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Klee the Curious with an iron fist, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.666 billion Kleerians 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, Spirituality, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Forgotten Four Leaf City. The average income tax rate is 75.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Kleerian economy, worth 15.4 trillion Evil Thoughts 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 Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. 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 5,766 Evil Thoughts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee, they say insanity is torturing the same citizens over and over again and expecting a different result, infantry are nicknamed "mushrooms" because they get fed crap and are left in the dark, and the diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Klee's national animal is the Rebel Without a Cause, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Finders Keepers.

Klee is ranked 231,857th in the world and 5,812th in Osiris for Least Corrupt Governments, with 86.32 percentage of bribes refused.
