The Most Serene Republic of Crucifer is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 776 million Brassicans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Daikon. The average income tax rate is 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Cruciferian economy, worth 32.6 trillion Cabbages a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 42,044 Cabbages, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cruciferian companies generally just fire employees in lieu of giving them vacation, a new religious movement claims that people's souls are stored in phosphorus, the bum of Leader has been voted the most recognisable in Crucifer, and Leader's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crucifer's national animal is the Horseradish, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Crucifer is ranked 160,624th in the world and 5,338th in The East Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -73.21 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
