The Imperial Realm of Kharim is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Vader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.588 billion Kharimians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tarsis. The average income tax rate is 18.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Kharimian economy, worth 556 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 121,325 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Customer satisfaction with online delivery services is at an all time high, the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, nighttime sightings of raccoons sporting Circle-A patches and bandanna masks are on the rise, and government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kharim's national animal is the Boar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Kharim is ranked 9,789th in the world and 288th in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 25,594.73 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
