The Dreaming Degenerates of Cryptonius is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Warden Palaeo with an even hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 12.362 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, with Healthcare, Environment, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lagornial. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Cryptoniusian economy, worth a remarkable 2,130 trillion Kets a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Retail. Average income is an impressive 172,345 Kets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Warden Palaeo's handshakes with opposition leaders usually lead to thumb wars, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, and children's bedrooms are often decorated with posters of successful accountants. Crime is totally unknown. Cryptonius's national animal is the Beluga, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cryptonius is ranked 3,457th in the world and 12th in Spiritus for Most Inclusive, scoring 250.19 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
