The Arizona Ranger of Crickets United is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jehellia with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 5.024 billion Cricketeers are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cricket. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish a Cricketeer economy, worth 103 trillion copper coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Uranium Mining, Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 20,617 copper coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crickets United has designated Cricket as its capital city, military spending is on the increase, Jehellia has just been declared ruler of Crickets United in an international press conference, and Might makes Right has been named as Crickets United's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crickets United's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Might makes Right.

Crickets United is ranked 156,105th in the world and 6,103rd in the Rejected Realms for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 23,497.26 Standard Monetary Units.
