The Empire of Kractero is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Queen Maya I with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 18.179 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 receive no funds. 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 7,795 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 428,844 Kracterian Escudoes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,463,759 per year while the poor average 92,453, a ratio of 15.8 to 1.

Chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, electrocution deaths among computer technicians are at an all-time high, recognizing the Kracterian flag qualifies you for citizenship, and fire stations and hospitals can't deploy emergency vehicles because badly parked cars block them in. 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 196th in the world and 1st in The Burning Legion for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 428,844.29 Standard Monetary Units.
