The Dictatorship of Kharaa is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.215 billion Kharens 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 67.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Kharen economy, worth 317 trillion Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 98,739 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Street preachers spend more time condemning government bureaucracy than passers-by, dancing with your first cousin is a misdemeanor, there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, and the police strictly enforce off-limit zones for tourists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kharaa's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is State Enforced Atheism.

Kharaa is ranked 58,887th in the world and 690th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,366.45 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
