Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Empire of Kratistolies is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Primarch with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, humorless population of 6.396 billion Kratosians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kallipolis. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Kratosian economy, worth a remarkable 1,072 trillion Drachmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 167,676 Drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, a government program is underway to revitalize Kratistolies's beaches, and the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Kratistolies after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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, and its national religion is Atheistic Emperor Worship.

Kratistolies is ranked 206th in The New Inquisition and 137,419th in the world for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -8 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
