The Kingdom of Not in Kansas Anymore is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, avant-garde cinema, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.219 billion Not in Kansas Anymoreans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Emerald City. The average income tax rate is 41.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Not in Kansas Anymorean economy, worth 701 trillion yellow bricks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Tourism, Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 85,396 yellow bricks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, criminal convictions are routinely thrown out because the accused's grandmother didn't get to testify about their good character, Thomas the Spank Engine is the most popular and controversial children's show in the nation, and would-be mescaline users often describe a crawling sensation on their skin. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Not in Kansas Anymore's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
