|Capital||Kalthordra na Skala|
|Animal||Creature that laughs without a face|
The Allied States of The Grand Empire of Kertha is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, sprawling nuclear power plants, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 692 million Kerthans 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, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kalthordra na Skala. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Grand Imperial economy, worth 81.2 trillion Silvers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 117,362 Silvers, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.
Dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, the government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Kalthordra na Skala for fear of causing a fuss, and nuclear physics is the most popular course at university. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Grand Empire of Kertha's national animal is the Creature that laughs without a face, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
