The Dominion of Codruul is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Aricona with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 5.469 billion Codruulians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 51.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Codruulian economy, worth 212 trillion aulas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 38,894 aulas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime, racial and religious segregation has become rife as the various groups are loath to mingle, and government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Codruul's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Codruul is ranked 219,619th in the world and 4,866th in Osiris for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.28 crimes per hour.
