The Commonwealth of Cral Ath is a huge, safe nation, ruled by MikaŽl Karvahaes with a fair hand, and renowned for its digital currency, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 918 million Cral Athians 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 Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Berlim. The average income tax rate is 77.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cral Athian economy, worth 96.7 trillion Marcars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 105,305 Marcars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, airport announcements inform passengers that flights have been delayed because pilots are having afternoon naps, and the government funds large training centres to turn Dolphins into functioning members of society. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cral Ath's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Cral Ath is ranked 9,559th in the world and 18th in Nordic Lands for Healthiest Citizens, with 15.17 bananas ingested per day.
