The Empire of Kratistolies is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by The Primarch with an iron fist, and notable for its restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical population of 5.358 billion Kratosians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defence, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kallipolis. The average income tax rate is 55%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, and government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kratistolies's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, its national religion is Atheistic Emperor Worship, and its currency is the Drachma.

Kratistolies is ranked 4th in The New Inquisition and 1,254th in the world for Best Weather, with 397 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
