The United Realms of Cretanja is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Oldyr II with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The compassionate population of 9.669 billion Cretanjans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Royal. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Cretanjan economy, worth a remarkable 1,015 trillion Gold Notes 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, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 105,064 Gold Notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, builders across Cretanja are blocked up with orders for new public loos, perverts across the land rejoice after 'sexual harassment' was recently renamed 'persuasive courting', and children regularly take part in blood sports that result in extreme boo-boos. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cretanja's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Cretanja is ranked 73,587th in the world and 5,057th in Osiris for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 2,666.4 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
