[OT] Compilable Python-like language?

I'm just curious if such a beast exists out there.  I've googled around some 
and read some programming language websites but I have yet to find a language 
similar to Python that can be compiled to binary.  Have I been looking in the 
wrong places?  I certainly can't be the only person to want a Pythonish 
language that can be compiled.  Even a language that just uses Python's basic 
syntax characteristics (no end-of-statement markers, use indentation to denote 
code blocks, less verbose syntax overall, etc) without the advanced dynamic 
and OO features would still be interesting to me (indeed, it would really have 
to lose most of the dynamic characteristics in order to make it a compilable 
language, which is why we don't have compile-to-binary Python, right?).  Is 
there such a thing?
