The Protectorate of Crete AU is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 709 million Cretans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 29.5%.

The Cretan economy, worth 29.8 trillion geneihs a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 42,009 geneihs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, and the media have begun calling the government treasury "Leader's stash". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Crete AU's national animal is the ibex, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Crete AU is ranked 32,979th in the world and 4th in Alternate Earth for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 3,021.65 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
