The Kingdom of Khevo is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Scott with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 17.8 billion Khevs enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arhelm. The average income tax rate is 88.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Khevic economy, worth a remarkable 1,335 trillion Pels a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,029 Pels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no 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 268,597th in the world and 216th in The Union of Democratic States for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 32.71 Whatever.
