The Hardworking TCT Journalists of Crazybloxian News Department is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Crazybloxian Empire with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.62 billion journalists enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Law & Order and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Crazybloxian Times headquarters. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.0%.

The very strong journalist economy, worth 95.7 trillion readers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 59,055 readers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 170,713 per year while the poor average 16,201, a ratio of 10.5 to 1.

Old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, billions of readers are being poured into a space program, and advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of Crazybloxian Empire's most personal functions. Crime is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Crazybloxian News Department's national animal is the newspaper.

Crazybloxian News Department is ranked 146,321st in the world and 6,353rd in Balder for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -5.59 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
