Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Directorate of Kronstein is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Edvard Zaharoff with an even hand, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, sprawling nuclear power plants, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 10.45 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 3,336 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 319,265 Syns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,736,493 per year while the poor average 30,179, a ratio of 57.5 to 1.

Abortions are routinely performed in Kronstein's hospitals, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, prominent cultural symbols are featured on the backs of cereal boxes, and the entire country is an urban wasteland as the well-to-do commute from space (Kronstein has found 3 easter eggs). 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 3rd in Zarathustra and 861st in the world for Most Avoided, scoring 2,908.687 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
