Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The NorCon Scalp Insurance Inc of Crumstain is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Eagle Bennet with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 11.436 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 Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crumstainia. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Crumstainian economy, worth a remarkable 1,117 trillion Coalition Aurums a year, is extremely 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 97,685 Coalition Aurums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, and the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills. 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 136,456th in the world and 75th in International Northwestern Union for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 15.87 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
