The Empire of Koem Kab is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Great Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.508 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, 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 average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Koem Kabian economy, worth a remarkable 5,934 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 790,382 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign governments are looking into weaponizing the infamous Koem Kabian bee, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, and the 3rd Airborne Beekeepers are the most feared regiment in the Koem Kabian military. 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 234,744th in the world and 1st in The Secret Order for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -978.74 on the Hayek Index.
