Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Directorate of Kronstein is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Edvard Zaharoff with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 11.068 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 and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality receive no funds. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Kron economy, worth a remarkable 3,575 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 323,050 Syns, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,757,078 per year while the poor average 30,537, a ratio of 57.5 to 1.

Raven populations thrive as dogs are slaughtered in the millions, the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan, government departments are almost broke due to the diversion of their funding to an experimental weather machine, and citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors. 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 5th in Zarathustra and 114,021st in the world for Stupidest Citizens, scoring -10 on the Average Edu-UNtellignce® Test Score.
