The Theocracy of Kaacko is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its closed borders, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-working, cynical, devout population of 667 million Kaackoans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Odessa. The average income tax rate is 80.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Kaackoan economy, worth 53.1 trillion Units a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 79,541 Units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Superfoods are often seen as supervillains, manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition, X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low, and eminent domain has been abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kaacko's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kaacko is ranked 17,894th in the world and 173rd in NationStates for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 7,841.91 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
