The Kingdom of Crookfur is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Cameron IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 37.363 billion Crookfurians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kirkhill. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Crookfurian economy, worth a remarkable 8,444 trillion pounds a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 226,010 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Sniffer dogs are trained to follow clouds of fruity-smelling vapor, dancing with your first cousin is a misdemeanor, vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes, and mystics are claiming that a simultaneous rise in scepticism and education budgets is correlation rather than causation. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Crookfur's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Crookfur is ranked 163,858th in the world and 1st in Vaguely Atlantic for Rudest Citizens, with 33.87 Insults Per Minute.
