The All-Powerful Hypnocracy of Kaoss is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by The Oft Honorable Kingman Barstow IV with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.912 billion KaossiKs are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of tropiKalia. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Kaossian economy, worth a remarkable 1,389 trillion KraKs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 175,572 KraKs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children need to wear helmets and safety harnesses before mounting a carousel horse, funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, the endangered saltwater humpback Honey Badger is only seen in captivity programs, and children wondering what happens to pets after they die are shown where the compost heap is. Crime is totally unknown. Kaoss's national animal is the Honey Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is PolyNecroTheism.

Kaoss is ranked 151,416th in the world and 237th in Spiritus for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -5.14 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
