The Republic of Crown 42 is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 5.798 billion Crown 42ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 47.8%.

The very strong Crown 42ian economy, worth 431 trillion salts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 74,389 salts, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals, the optimally efficient parking strategy for business commuters is referred to as the "traveling salesman problem", doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, and pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crown 42's national animal is the llama, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Crown 42 is ranked 164,701st in the world and 7,108th in Balder for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 281.09 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
