The Dreaming Degenerates of Cryptonius is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Warden Palaeo with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.841 billion Cryptoniusites enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Public Transport are also considered important, 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 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Cryptoniusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,953 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 164,946 Kets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Corporate lobbying has been outlawed, Cryptonius's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, and bins outnumber trees in city parks. Crime is almost non-existent. Cryptonius's national animal is the Beluga, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cryptonius is ranked 145,052nd in the world and 222nd in Spiritus for Most Armed, with 0.15 Weapons Per Person.
