The People's Republic of Croix Island is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 160 million Croix Islanders are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 49.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Croix Islander economy, worth 1.07 trillion Bucks 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 mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is 6,661 Bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government officials raid public buildings to remove all mention of G*d or r******n, the comic book series 'Leader and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, t-shirts displaying a photo of Leader performing the Full-Monty are selling out, and the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Croix Island's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Croix Island is ranked 142,667th in the world and 858th in 10000 Islands for Most Devout, with 7.44 Prayers Per Hour.
