The United States of Klein Bearkats is a small, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 23 million Klein citizens have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.5%.
The very strong Klein Bearkatsian economy, worth 1.71 trillion Nokias a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is 74,469 Nokias, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 245,015 per year while the poor average 16,960, a ratio of 14.4 to 1.
Political dissidents are cut off from essential services, glamping Klein citizens won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten, and the government strictly regulates whale harvest quotas. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Klein Bearkats's national animal is the Dogger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
