The Empire of Koem Kab is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by The Great Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, free-roaming dinosaurs, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.229 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, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Federick City. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Koem Kabian economy, worth a remarkable 6,735 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 818,474 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hairdressers are among those who have disappeared overnight, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, and grannies with arthritic hands work miserably on factory production lines. 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 9th in the world and 1st in The Secret Order for Highest Poor Incomes, with 609,896.74 Standard Monetary Units.
