The Dictatorship of Kratatoa is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, zero percent divorce rate, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.706 billion Kratatoans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kratatoa City. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Kratatoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,050 trillion Kracks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 98,099 Kracks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount Kratatoa City make great practice for foreign snipers, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', and picnickers are lucky if a few wasps are the only animals that trouble them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kratatoa's national animal is the Devil, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kratatoa is ranked 25,474th in the world and 751st in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,084.68 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
