The Holy Empire of Morkhest is a small, genial nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working population of 26 million Morkhestians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.9%.

The Morkhestian economy, worth 1.34 trillion Darknesses a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Gambling, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 51,480 Darknesses, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Legal contracts aren't worth the paper they're written on, the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, online weather reports are predicting five years of glorious sunshine for Morkhest, and the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Morkhest City. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Morkhest's national animal is the Dragon.

Morkhest is ranked 17,470th in the world and 2nd in Memelandic for Safest, scoring 113.55 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
