Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Directorate of Kronstein is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Edvard Zaharoff with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 10.171 billion Krons are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Education is also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality aren't funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Kron economy, worth a remarkable 3,239 trillion Syns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 318,472 Syns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,775,481 per year while the poor average 28,519, a ratio of 62.3 to 1.

The country is effectively ruled by large corporations and business consultants, Kronstein is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, the new prison system is crowding up at an alarming rate, and eight year-olds with lemonade stands have been known to be locked up on charges of embezzlement. Crime is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Kronstein's national animal is the Raven, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kronstein is ranked 2nd in Zarathustra and 340th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 29 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
