The Devastation of Cro Magnon is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by a council of Dons with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 14.881 billion Cro Mags live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Fire Pit. The average income tax rate is 2.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Cro Magnon economy, worth a remarkable 1,275 trillion shiny stones a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Soda Sales industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 85,690 shiny stones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, closed universities are currently being converted into MacDonald's restaurants, a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, and Humongo-Mart's Beef 'n Woolly Mammoth Lasagne is a hit. 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 225,974th in the world and 5,977th in the West Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -14.14 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
