The Technocracy of Kroumos is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Stephen Julian Joseph with an even hand, and renowned for its digital currency, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 3.902 billion Kroumosians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Patrick. The average income tax rate is 79.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Kroumosian economy, worth 301 trillion Joules a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,194 Joules, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Beating a dead horse is a scientific endeavor, an enormous health awareness programme is underway, corrupt paupers spend taxpayer Joules on liquor and tobacco, and the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kroumos's national animal is the Human, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kroumos is ranked 199,897th in the world and 6,895th in the South Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 16,210.87 Standard Monetary Units.
