The Clockwork Forge of Stash Kroh is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 13.177 billion Stash Krohians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Defence, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of some place we all should avoid. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66%. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Gambling.
Sex offenders find themselves 'cut off' from any ability to repeat their crimes, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, and archaeological discoveries are often followed by mysterious hamster abductions. Crime is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stash Kroh's national animal is the Malchicks, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Clockwork.
