The Punky Defender of Grea Kriopia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sophia Augusta Renee with a fair hand, and remarkable for its fear of technology, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.293 billion Kriopians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kriopia City. The average income tax rate is 87.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Grea Kriopian economy, worth a remarkable 1,117 trillion Golden Krions a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 153,248 Golden Krions, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The running costs of homeless shelters are so high that it would be cheaper to buy houses for the homeless, coastal cities are being moved a dozen miles inland to reduce flooding risk, knitting needles have been banned in the name of public safety, and the nation leads The Order of the Grey Wardens for unlikely accidents and truffle consumption. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grea Kriopia's national animal is the llama, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnostic.

Grea Kriopia is ranked 42,670th in the world and 73rd in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 3,951.09 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
