The Kingdom of Crookfur is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Cameron IV with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, free-roaming dinosaurs, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, cheerful population of 39.221 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 8,860 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 225,900 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, doctors accused of having no heart reply that cardiology isn't their speciality, and puppies given out free in marketing promotions are often tossed straight into the trash. 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 2,708th in the world and 1st in Vaguely Atlantic for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 322.53 Bank.
