The Administrative Republic of Crumstain is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Branson with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed population of 4.921 billion Crumstainites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crumania. The average income tax rate is 60%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

There has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and all news sources are under strict government control. 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, its national religion is Malkbaconne, and its currency is the Crummy.

Crumstain is ranked 11th in International Northern Union and 4,545th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 59 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
