The Kingdom of Kractero is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Maya I with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 14.598 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, with Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ponta Delgada. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Kracterian economy, worth a remarkable 5,932 trillion Iberian Dollars 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 406,376 Iberian Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,866,357 per year while the poor average 53,689, a ratio of 34.8 to 1.

Kids' party bags often contain candy and e-cigarettes, the prevalence of circular logic frequently renders parliamentary observers dizzy, the distracting décor lining the roads causes multiple pile-ups, and social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Kractero's national animal is the Box Turtle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is State Unaffiliated.

Kractero is ranked 160,585th in the world and 263rd in The Burning Legion for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -41.95 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
