The Technocracy of Kroumos is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Stephen Julian Joseph with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.553 billion Kroumosians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Patrick. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.9%.

The strong Kroumosian economy, worth 209 trillion Joules a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 81,995 Joules, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Stephen Julian Joseph is adamant that ponies aren't just for little girls, the nation loves all colours indiscriminately (Kroumos has found 2 easter eggs), beating a dead horse is a scientific endeavor, and an enormous health awareness programme is underway. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 38,733rd in the world and 1,159th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 68.78 on the Human Development Index.
