Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of Klesh is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Cor Enladen with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 31.339 billion Kleshites are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gamorra. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Kleshite economy, worth an astonishing 23,588 trillion Corics a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 752,681 Corics, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,306,307 per year while the poor average 190,146, a ratio of 12.1 to 1.

Wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, business leaders are mailing Cor Enladen forged birth certificates in a bid to win their rivals as serfs, friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, and the national policy on terrorism is "forgive and forget". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Klesh's national animal is the River Dolphin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Diode.

Klesh is ranked 151,805th in the world and 44th in Eladen for Highest Crime Rates, with 0.92 Crimes Per Hour.
