The Decepticon Empire of Kaon is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Megatron with an iron fist, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.718 billion Kaonians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kaon City. The average income tax rate is 63%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Retail.

Police officers have been re-kitted with designer uniforms and gold plated handcuffs, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative', and the commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Kaon with a very polite populace. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Kaon's national animal is the Laserbeak, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Megatosh, and its currency is the Energon.

Kaon is ranked 490th in The Black Riders and 105,413th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 21 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
