The Technocracy of Kroumos is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Stephen Julian Joseph with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate population of 4.351 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 80.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Kroumosian economy, worth 327 trillion Joules a year, is highly 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 75,213 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 24,751st in the world and 751st in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,737.62 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
