The Revealing Science of Siberian Khatru is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 13.088 billion Siberian Khatruans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Heart of The Sunrise. The average income tax rate is 48.6%.

The very strong Siberian Khatruan economy, worth 695 trillion Styxes a year, is dominated by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 53,153 Styxes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Waste is frequently shipped to other countries, Siberian Khatru's newly-famous raindances to summon storms instead attract tourists from all over The Watchtower, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and school uniforms are compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Siberian Khatru's national animal is the Dead Griffin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Church of Westwind.

Siberian Khatru is ranked 7,360th in the world and 1st in The Watchtower for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 9,454.58 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
