The Holy Empire of Klesh is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Cor Enladen with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 35.997 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 27,134 trillion Corics a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 753,811 Corics, with the richest citizens earning 9.9 times as much as the poorest.

Children asking questions about science are referred to relevant sections in religious texts, the state believes that children are what you make of them, Tetris has been banned for its graphic violent content, and foreign leaders who don't applaud Cor Enladen's speeches are regarded as enemies of Klesh. 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 154,000th in the world and 35th in Eladen for Highest Drug Use, scoring 0.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
