The Autocratic State of Khovezzem is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Autocrat with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, digital currency, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.954 billion Khovezi are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kohz Avarkem. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.9%.

The thriving Khovezi economy, worth 381 trillion gezzes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Gambling. Average income is 77,107 gezzes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 285,527 per year while the poor average 14,662, a ratio of 19.5 to 1.

The "daily grind" consists of levelling up in tedious video games, grocery store cereal aisles resemble a Piet Mondrian work, a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, and environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Khovezzem's national animal is the dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Autocratism.

Khovezzem is ranked 98,877th in the world and 19th in The Alliance of Dictators for Fattest Citizens, with 11.53 Obesity Rate.
