The Empire of Kractero is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Maya I with an even hand, and remarkable for its closed borders, otherworldly petting zoo, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 16.083 billion Kracterians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cochin. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Kracterian economy, worth a remarkable 6,751 trillion Kracterian Escudoes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 419,799 Kracterian Escudoes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,441,737 per year while the poor average 10,860, a ratio of 316 to 1.

The state has declared war on the environment and environmentalists by association, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, children in school playgrounds can be heard chanting the hymns of the Order of Violet, and nothing gets the party jumping like Queen Maya I specifying how high. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Kractero's national animal is the Bengal Tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is State Unaffiliated.

Kractero is ranked 562nd in the world and 3rd in Commonwealth of Liberty for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 11,094.08 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
