The Drug Fueled Utopian Communes of Al Khem is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by EnKu with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.369 billion Khems are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carcossa in the Hyades. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Khemish economy, worth a remarkable 8,172 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, fairly diversified 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 470,534 Tas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School lockers are filled with fancy underwear, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, and parking lots are littered with coffee cups and doughnut crumbs. 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 1,185th in the world and 2nd in Taijitu for Most Beautiful Environments, with 4,142.21 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
