The Nomadic Legion of Cruciland is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Keysar David Aryelev with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.923 billion Crucilandians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kokhavkiryah. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Crucilandian economy, worth a remarkable 8,900 trillion Niqudas 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. 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 a breathtaking 688,713 Niqudas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security, it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, and the nation's black ops are starting to get on people's nerves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cruciland's national animal is the sabertoothed cheetah, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Historical Christianity.

Cruciland is ranked 254th in the world and 1st in Cymopolia for Most Devout, with 19,981.27 Prayers Per Hour.
