The United Socialist States of Kharim is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 722 million Kharimians 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, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.0%.

The strong Kharimian economy, worth 42.7 trillion KharimCashes a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 59,153 KharimCashes, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

All the playground's a stage for Kharimian schoolchildren, strange men lingering in offices distributing television sets is a basis for a system of government, the best-of-the-best athletes have been replaced by the best-of-the-mediocre, and fresh food is a thing of the past due to onerous testing standards. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kharim's national animal is the Boar, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Kharim is ranked 150,367th in the world and 3rd in The Region of Economic Cooperation for Most Armed, with 0.18 Weapons Per Person.
