The INWU Unisex Bathroom of Crumstain is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Eagle Cockchafer with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 16.348 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 Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crumstainia. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Crumstainian economy, worth a remarkable 1,715 trillion NorBucks a year, is highly specialized and 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 104,923 NorBucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

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 47,628th in the world and 27th in International Northwestern Union for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 4,216.6 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
