The Krazy Kakistocracy of Cretox State is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Great Big Orange Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.207 billion Statans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ponzify. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Statan economy, worth 807 trillion rectangular numbered things 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 191,870 rectangular numbered things, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones, Great Big Orange Leader has been nicknamed 'Robomop', and an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cretox State's national animal is the overpaid executive, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Nepotism.

Cretox State is ranked 266,431st in the world and 13,757th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.48 crimes per hour.
