Pale Mountains of Klesh

Population21.992 billion

AnimalHilly Goat

The Bandit Kings of Pale Mountains of Klesh is a gargantuan, cultured nation, remarkable for its complete lack of public education, complete absence of social welfare, and exploding hoverboards. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 21.992 billion Bandits live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Bandit economy, worth a remarkable 7,288 trillion Corics a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 331,408 Corics, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,090,982 per year while the poor average 3,148, a ratio of 981 to 1.

Vile black smog from coal power plants has enveloped several major urban centres, Bandit athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump, citizens are bombarded with advertising from their compulsory miniature radios, and electricity company executives pray nightly to Zeus and Thor. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Pale Mountains of Klesh's national animal is the Hilly Goat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Pale Mountains of Klesh is ranked 259,081st in the world and 26th in Eladen for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -73.01 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
