The Empire of Khandabprastha is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, digital currency, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 431 million Khandabas 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Indraprastha. The average income tax rate is 34.4%.

The all-consuming Khandabprasthan economy, worth 47.6 trillion Swarnamudras a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 110,541 Swarnamudras, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, and excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Khandabprastha's national animal is the Ouroboros, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Khandabprastha is ranked 22,391st in the world and 3rd in My own region for Most Developed, scoring 79.61 on the Human Development Index.
