The Devastation of Cro Magnon is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by a council of Dons with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 19.957 billion Cro Mags hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Healthcare, although Industry is also considered important, while Welfare and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Fire Pit. The average income tax rate is 4.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Cro Magnon economy, worth a remarkable 1,587 trillion shiny stones a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and dominated by the Soda Sales industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 79,563 shiny stones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

No-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium, getting an infected tattoo is considered a rite of passage in Cro Magnon, most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, and internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Cro Magnon weed picker are way up. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Cro Magnon's national animal is the Woolly Mammoth, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Darkesianism.

Cro Magnon is ranked 300,700th in the world and 7,149th in the West Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 4.2 law-abiding acts per hour.
