The Free Constitutional Monarchy of Kryuland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Casimiro IV Krushj with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.373 billion Kryulandians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blossomjd. The average income tax rate is 70.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Kryulandian economy, worth 809 trillion euros a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 96,692 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, and the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kryuland's national animal is the hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
