The Democratic Republic of Crackerrs is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical population of 256 million Crackers are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 59.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Cracker economy, worth 10.7 trillion Crackers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 41,603 Crackers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, a government program is underway to revitalize Crackerrs's beaches, the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, and religious bigotry is not allowed but bigotry against theism is encouraged. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crackerrs's national animal is the Baby Harp Seal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Crackerrs is ranked 9,509th in the world and 1st in THE RANDOM REGION 2 ELECTRIC BOOGALOO for Most Pacifist, with 130.15 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
