The Former Superpower of Crontor is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 15.953 billion Crontorians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vienna. The average income tax rate is 84.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Crontorian economy, worth a remarkable 4,169 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 261,369 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The sanitised and dull music festivals of Crontor are famed for their reasonable volume levels, when people ask what the difference is between politicians and lawyers they are referred to document c15(iv) section 14.1 subsection 3.2 of the Jan 2015 political category definition guidance codes, genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, and President's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crontor's national animal is the Octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Cronism.

Crontor is ranked 4,867th in the world and 147th in Balder for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 378.34 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
