The People's Republic of Khyrrat is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Ahmet Vissari with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, aversion to nipples, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.679 billion Khyrratians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ískemen. The average income tax rate is 78.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Khyrratian economy, worth 790 trillion Khyrras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 214,817 Khyrras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, and every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Khyrrat's national animal is the loup, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Khyrrat is ranked 209,835th in the world and 803rd in The Communist Bloc for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -167.12 on the Hayek Index.
