The Empire of Koem Kab is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Great Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of prisons, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.453 billion Koem Kabs are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Federick City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Koem Kabian economy, worth a remarkable 8,053 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 851,903 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, and promising seven years of bad luck leads to seven years of community service. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Koem Kab's national animal is the porpoise, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Koem Kabism.

Koem Kab is ranked 48th in the world and 1st in The Secret Order for Most Secular, with 99.38 Atheism Rate.
