The Constitutional Monarchy of Kranostav is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Most Honorable Fredrich Huber with an even hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 5.85 billion Kranostavians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vybor. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Kranostavian economy, worth 921 trillion Traviks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 157,522 Traviks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 635,793 per year while the poor average 26,057, a ratio of 24.4 to 1.

Conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, getting an infected tattoo is considered a rite of passage in Kranostav, and when you fly on Air Kranostav you win a seat or you die. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kranostav's national animal is the Desert Muskrat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Germanic Catholicism.

Kranostav is ranked 133,784th in the world and 7,172nd in The North Pacific for Nudest, with 85.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
