The INWU Unisex Bathroom of Crumstain is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Eagle Cockchafer with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, ritual sacrifices, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 18.582 billion Crumstainians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crumstainia. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Crumstainian economy, worth a remarkable 1,972 trillion NorBucks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,125 NorBucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, and invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crumstain's national animal is the Northern Steed, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Malkbaconne.

Crumstain is ranked 2,429th in the world and 2nd in International Northwestern Union for Best Weather, with 406 Meters Of Sunlight.
