The People's republic of Khiralia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lorenzo Von Matterhorn with an even hand, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, state-planned economy, and public floggings. The compassionate population of 4.063 billion Khirals are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ralletia. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Khirali economy, worth 293 trillion Khirales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is 72,312 Khirales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gossip magazines have pictures of Lorenzo Von Matterhorn sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, sex offenders find themselves cut off from the ability to repeat their crimes, and political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Khiralia's national animal is the Aviar, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Austrism.

Khiralia is ranked 126,594th in the world and 4,847th in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 55.05 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
