The Dreaming Degenerates of Cryptonius is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Warden Palaeo with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, avant-garde cinema, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.732 billion Cryptoniusites have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lagornial. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Cryptoniusian economy, worth a remarkable 2,201 trillion Kets a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 172,889 Kets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Studio executives abandon tragic stories of star-crossed lovers because "it's been done", elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, nouveau riche farmers diligently take care of their golden calf herds, and Warden Palaeo's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week. Crime is totally unknown. Cryptonius's national animal is the Beluga, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cryptonius is ranked 163,602nd in the world and 300th in Spiritus for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -14.07 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
