The People's republic of Khiralia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Dalinar Kholin with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 2.327 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 Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luthadel. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Khirali economy, worth 162 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 mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is 69,973 Khirales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, soldiers have swapped their uniforms for prisonwear, it takes all playtime for children to locate their friends among two hundred identical heads, and park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets. 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 4,038th in the world and 522nd in The East Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 28 Valid Endorsements.
