The Cruthin People's Empire of Cruithnig is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Emperor Craigavon IV with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.799 billion 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."
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Béal Átha Seanaidh. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 79%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.
Political activists are routinely executed, mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, and guns are banned. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Cruithnig's national animal is the Ulster Hound, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Cruithnig Ethnic and National Supemacy, and its currency is the Fáda.
