The New Military State of Greater Krakona is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Transitional Military Council with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, fear of technology, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.672 billion Krakonans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Slovograd. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 79.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Greater Krakonan economy, worth 917 trillion Armed Forces Currency Units a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is an amazing 249,819 Armed Forces Currency Units, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

Out-of-work basketball players loom over the unemployment line, the national sporting identity is represented by a talking burger and a singing smartphone, only the brainiest citizens become academics, and the Department of Reduction of Bureaucratic Red Tape has set up a working committee to investigate its own excessive paperwork. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Krakona's national animal is the Eagle Bison, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Krakonan Orthodox Christianity.

Greater Krakona is ranked 167,376th in the world and 16th in Eastern Europe for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 24.83 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
