The Federal Republic of Crestphalia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Wolfgang Harich with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.857 billion Crestphalians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, corrupt, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Germania. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Crestphalian economy, worth 928 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 135,433 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Human sacrifice to the metaphorical altar of Mammon ensures national prosperity, there have been reports of people marrying housepets, an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, and mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crestphalia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Crestphalia is ranked 222,537th in the world and 1,261st in Europe for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -17.49 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
