The Kingdom of Crookfur is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by King Cameron IV with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, pith helmet sales, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, cheerful population of 33.894 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 Spirituality and International Aid not 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 7,654 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 225,833 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's forests are full of treasure hunters in military-grade survival gear, a sudden shout of "surprise!" does not herald a party for teachers, literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, and coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list. 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 1,352nd in the world and 1st in Vaguely Atlantic for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 795.04 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
