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 notable for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 10.895 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, with Education and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality are ignored. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Kron economy, worth a remarkable 3,518 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 322,906 Syns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,756,293 per year while the poor average 30,523, a ratio of 57.5 to 1.

Returning tourists and businessmen are detained without trial if they belong to the "wrong" religion, travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, and gigantic new prisons are springing up all over the nation. 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 8th in Zarathustra and 22,816th in the world for Largest Public Sector, scoring 23 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
