The Empire of Creston is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by McMan with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 2.287 billion Crestonians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Welfare, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Administration are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Creston City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.3%.

The powerhouse Crestonian economy, worth 116 trillion GREAT Monies a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 50,973 GREAT Monies, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 162,904 per year while the poor average 12,116, a ratio of 13.4 to 1.

The nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield, search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards, and nobody knows why the caged Black Lion sings. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Creston's national animal is the Black Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Creston is ranked 87,868th in the world and 46th in Caer Sidi for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 162,904 Standard Monetary Units.
