The Empire of Koem Kab is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by The Great Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its aversion to nipples, vat-grown people, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.148 billion Koem Kabs are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Federick City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Koem Kabian economy, worth a remarkable 7,745 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 846,676 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The carbon footprint falls along with the human footprint during war, the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, military spending recently hit a new high, and space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Koem Kab's national animal is the porpoise, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Koem Kabism.

Koem Kab is ranked 240,866th in the world and 1st in The Secret Order for Least Corrupt Governments, with 0.79 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
