The Drug Fueled Utopian Communes of Al Khem is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by EnKu with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, infamous sell-swords, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.713 billion Khems are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carcossa in the Hyades. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Khemish economy, worth a remarkable 5,513 trillion Tas 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, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. 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 an amazing 402,080 Tas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, terrorist videos start by thanking their sponsors, and the nation has always been at war with Moltovea. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Al Khem's national animal is the Ghak'ell, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Khemist Path of Truth and the Way.

Al Khem is ranked 172,147th in the world and 36th in Taijitu for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 2,814.56 Standard Monetary Units.
