The Empire of Kryosis is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by He Whose Name Is Awesome with an iron fist, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 12.148 billion Kryosi are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as Social Welfare and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kriminis. The average income tax rate is 83%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.
All-natural foods are becoming a major fad, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, and a crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Kryosis's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is The Cult of Awesome, and its currency is the Kryosi Nyxx.
