Kronos The Klingon Home Planet

Population5.796 billion



The Klingon Empire of Kronos The Klingon Home Planet is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by K'mpec with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, aversion to nipples, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.796 billion Klingons 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, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Welfare and Industry also on the agenda, while Administration and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Qo'noS. The average income tax rate is 13.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Klingon economy, worth 465 trillion Darseks a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 80,293 Darseks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

No cul-de-sac or trailer park is complete without a gambling parlor, the Qo'noS Prison Revue puts on a better stage show than anything in the Theatre District, farmers' market days almost always end in a shooting, and a cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Kronos The Klingon Home Planet's national animal is the Targ, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Honor.

Kronos The Klingon Home Planet is ranked 256,673rd in the world and 167th in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.45 bananas ingested per day.
