The Dictatorship of Cramarelia is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, ritual sacrifices, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 537 million Cramarelians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Drachylon City. The average income tax rate is 74.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Cramarelian economy, worth 49.6 trillion Blue pins a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 92,282 Blue pins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Roosters that herald the rising sun are immediately sent to the slaughterhouse, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, war criminals are given full state funerals, and EpiPen sales have skyrocketed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cramarelia's national animal is the Fox, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cramarelia is ranked 230,977th in the world and 666th in Conch Kingdom for Nicest Citizens, with 0.47 average smiles per day.
