The Khmers are a barbarian nation in the Conquer the World campaign. They are based on the Khmer Empire (802-1431 CE), which extended as far as most of present-day Cambodia, Thailand, Laos, and a small portion of southeastern Myanmar. One of the greatest empires of Southeast Asian history, famous for its magnificent capital of Angkor, at its peak the largest pre-industrial urban center in the world, and its temple complex, the largest religious structure in the world to this day.
In the "The Entire World" Campaign, they occupy the Unclaimed Territories of Eastern Asia, sharing the Asian continent with the Sumerians, which control the Unclaimed Territories of Western Asia. Like every other barbarian nation, they use the Barbarian unique units and have the Power of Sacrifice from the Aztecs. If the player controls the Aztecs, then they will use the Mayan Power of Architecture instead. Their building style is Asian and their unit style is Asian.
