|Leader||Khatun Qirka Bulan|
The Khatunate of Khazar Lechia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Khatun Qirka Bulan with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.938 billion Khazar Lechians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astana. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73.4%.
The frighteningly efficient khazar lechian economy, worth 342 trillion Altins a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 176,560 Altins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 818,378 per year while the poor average 22,936, a ratio of 35.7 to 1.
Most academic research has ground to a halt, dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, abortions are carried out secretly in shady backstreet clinics, and raindances intended to summon storms instead attract tourists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Khazar Lechia's national animal is the Steppe Horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Abrahamic religions.
