The Constitutional Monarchy of Craiglang is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Counsellor McVitty with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.708 billion Decrepit Auld Bastards hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jenny's. The average income tax rate is 59.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Craiglangian economy, worth 189 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 69,942 Pound Sterlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Inheritance tax has recently been abolished, cheap textbooks have replaced coasters at college ragers, sharks are enjoying their deliveries of canned food, and open-casket funerals are avoided at all cost. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Craiglang's national animal is the Cane Toad, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Craiglang is ranked 12,028th in the world and 32nd in The Western Isles for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 10,706.71 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
