The Kingdom of Khevo is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Scott with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.733 billion Khevs enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arhelm. The average income tax rate is 81.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Khevic economy, worth 663 trillion Pels a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 68,118 Pels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet, NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people, political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, and would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Khevo's national animal is the Barn Swallow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Cyism.

Khevo is ranked 31,287th in the world and 76th in The Union of Democratic States for Highest Poor Incomes, with 55,014.73 Standard Monetary Units.
