The Dreaming Degenerates of Cryptonius is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Warden Palaeo with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.068 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 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Cryptoniusian economy, worth a remarkable 2,281 trillion Kets a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 174,588 Kets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground, and the Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue". Crime is totally unknown. Cryptonius's national animal is the Beluga, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cryptonius is ranked 1,345th in the world and 2nd in The Wolf Clan for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 795.98 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
