The Colony of Crialdenna is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 441 million Crialdennans 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 76.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Crialdennan economy, worth 4.33 trillion Pounds 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 9,814 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, and Crialdenna has designated Crialdenna City as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crialdenna's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Crialdenna is ranked 977th in the world and 8th in Refugia for Most Income Equality, scoring 98.59 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
