The Kingdom of Khevo is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by King Scott with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.65 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 83.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Khevic economy, worth 760 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 71,386 Pels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction, and there's no such thing as bad publicity. 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 8,606th in the world and 13th in The Union of Democratic States for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 3,529.89 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
