The Kampuchan Republic of LVK212 is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Chief General Secretary Pol Pot with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, free-roaming dinosaurs, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.336 billion Khmers 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Phnom Phen. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient LVK212ian economy, worth a remarkable 4,898 trillion Skulls 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 Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. 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 an amazing 432,147 Skulls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign leaders who don't applaud Chief General Secretary Pol Pot's speeches are regarded as enemies of LVK212, 90% of active duty LAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, citizens have reported seeing strange rays of light emanating from the moon, and friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. LVK212's national animal is the Tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is ប៉ុល ពត.

LVK212 is ranked 3,093rd in the world and 9th in Fifth Empire for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 656.03 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
