The Empire of Koem Kab is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Great Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.782 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, moralistic, 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 average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Koem Kabian economy, worth a remarkable 6,226 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 800,179 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hairdressers are forced to use all the tricks of the trade after citizens became required to wear helmets at all times, no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium, most pop videos prominently feature the Koem Kabian flag, and with increasingly clear skies nobody seems to mind the electricity bill going through the roof. 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 2,512th in the world and 1st in The Secret Order for Most Developed, scoring 97.07 on the Human Development Index.
