The Punky Defender of Grea Kriopia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Sophia Augusta Renee with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, fear of technology, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.035 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 Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kriopia City. The average income tax rate is 86.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Grea Kriopian economy, worth 775 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 154,112 Golden Krions, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies, over a third of the seats in sports stadiums have been removed to make room for female-only commodes, and for some reason the census focuses on daily banana ingestion and hourly quip rate. 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 229,880th in the world and 396th in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.54 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
