The Porcelain Throne of Crumstain is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Eagle Cockchafer with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 12.515 billion Crumstainians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crumstainia. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Crumstainian economy, worth a remarkable 1,261 trillion NorBucks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,798 NorBucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Libraries are replacing history books and classic novels with technical manuals and trades directories to match the nation's changing demands, criminals always seem to be forewarned of police raids, broken suspension systems are giving auto repair shops plenty of business, and rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes. 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 166,890th in the world and 111th in International Northwestern Union for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -30.49 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
