The Imperial Federation of Crontor is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Cranico with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 10.092 billion Crontorians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vienna. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Crontorian economy, worth a remarkable 2,351 trillion Aureuses a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 232,974 Aureuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crontor's national animal is the Octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Cronism.

Crontor is ranked 38th in Sondria and 114,246th in the world for Most Devout, scoring -269 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
