The Nomadic Legion of Cruciland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Keysar David Aryelev with an iron fist, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.186 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, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid are ignored. 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 8,105 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, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. 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 665,148 Niqudas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, cassocked priests and choirboys believe that what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors, no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police, and the nation's train stations are widely considered to be the ugliest in Cymopolia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 541st in the world and 1st in Cymopolia for Highest Economic Output, with 8,105 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
