The Drug Fueled Utopian Communes of Al Khem is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by EnKu with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, unlimited-speed roads, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.208 billion Khems are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carcossa in the Hyades. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Khemish economy, worth a remarkable 6,994 trillion Tas 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 black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. 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 431,541 Tas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Economic output is rising as the chronically depressed are persuaded not to burden society, children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, and the national security service are a bunch of crooks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Al Khem's national animal is the Ghak'ell, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Khemist Path of Truth and the Way.

Al Khem is ranked 5,877th in the world and 7th in Taijitu for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 523,959 Standard Monetary Units.
