The Far North Empire of Crumstain is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Branson with a fair hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 6.01 billion Crumstainites love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crumstainia. The average income tax rate is 83.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Crumstainian economy, worth 378 trillion Crummies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 62,939 Crummies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Biology and religious education classes have recently been merged, the government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and same-sex marriages are increasingly common. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crumstain's national animal is the Llama, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Malkbaconne.

Crumstain is ranked 49th in International Northwestern Union and 68,985th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.227 Stalins.
