The Holy Empire of Korhe is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Kaiser Tindle with an iron fist, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 10.031 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 prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Korhe. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Korhean economy, worth a remarkable 2,490 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 248,256 Reiksmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card, old warplanes and tanks that break down can't be repaired since no one makes the parts anymore, and political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act. 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 Suenism.

Korhe is ranked 37,314th in the world and 1,616th in Balder for Most Authoritarian, with 1,337.06 milliStalins.
