The Nomadic Legion of Cruciland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Keysar David Aryelev with an iron fist, and remarkable for its national health service, soft-spoken computers, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.959 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, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, 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 an astonishing 11,197 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 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 748,523 Niqudas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dictionary sales have hit an all-time high, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Cruciland, and contestants on Cruciland's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent. 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 26th in the world and 1st in Fifth Empire for Highest Poor Incomes, with 536,255.86 Standard Monetary Units.
