The Empire of Kractero is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Maya I with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 19.649 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, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. 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 8,456 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 430,372 Kracterian Escudoes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,479,037 per year while the poor average 91,831, a ratio of 16.1 to 1.

Those who cut young children are told to cut it out, all you have to do is pray to get into Kractero, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, and the nation's water should not be ingested while operating heavy machinery. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is State Unaffiliated.

Kractero is ranked 526th in the world and 1st in The Burning Legion for Rudest Citizens, with 438.69 insults per minute.
