The Autocratic State of Kitzgos is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Shung-Blef with an iron fist, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, smutty television, and avant-garde cinema. The cynical population of 966 million Kitzgosians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Belsay. The average income tax rate is 65.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kitzgosian economy, worth 124 trillion Kit Credits 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, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. 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 an impressive 128,851 Kit Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, all smart devices are under the control of the all-seeing AI, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, and schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kitzgos's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Kitzgos is ranked 28,871st in the world and 1,603rd in The North Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 6.68 Bank.
