Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Directorate of Kronstein is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Edvard Zaharoff with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 10.657 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 3,434 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 322,277 Syns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,711,137 per year while the poor average 32,067, a ratio of 53.4 to 1.

The government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, and the government has repealed elections for fear of 'mob rule'. 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 4th in Zarathustra and 1,397th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring 47 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
