The Holy Empire of Korhe is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Kaiser Tindle with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and national health service. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 7.606 billion Korheans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Korhe. The average income tax rate is 93.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Korhean economy, worth a remarkable 1,815 trillion Reiksmarks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 238,707 Reiksmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Korhe, prison walls have had to be modified to keep parkour-trained criminals from escaping, and citizens are required to report any and all incidents of prayer to their local Religious Affairs Officer. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Korhe's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Eloism.

Korhe is ranked 87,457th in the world and 45th in Right to Life for Largest Black Market, with 296 billion Standard Monetary Units.
