The Dominion of Klusis is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Artemis Ravenstar with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 4.937 billion Klusisians 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 Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Obsidian Citidel. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Klusisian economy, worth 629 trillion Raven Notes 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 Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 127,486 Raven Notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminals are thrown to the Klusian White Ravens to repay their debt to society, there's never enough space in space, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Klusis's radio stations, and authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Klusis's national animal is the Klusian White Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The People.

Klusis is ranked 11,221st in the world and 27th in The Hole To Hide In for Most Developed, scoring 89.52 on the Human Development Index.
