The Imperial Federation of Crontor is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Cranico with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 8.326 billion 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vienna. The average income tax rate is 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.
The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, and government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crontor's national animal is the Octopus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Cronism, and its currency is the Aureus.
