The Kingdom of Khevo is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Scott with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.598 billion Khevs are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arhelm. The average income tax rate is 83.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Khevic economy, worth 843 trillion Pels a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 72,755 Pels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers, environmentalists are advocating slash-and-burn in the nation's forests, a video of King Scott wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news, and Khevic politicians are often described as having more style than substance. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Khevo's national animal is the Barn Swallow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Cyism.

Khevo is ranked 194,805th in the world and 217th in The Union of Democratic States for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 510.08 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
