The Empire of Kratistolies is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Primarch with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 12.414 billion Kratosians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kallipolis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Kratosian economy, worth a remarkable 4,200 trillion Drachmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 338,398 Drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

They say that The Primarch's personal computer is full of naked pictures of the Emperor of Maxtopia, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, The Primarch's family members carry literal get-out-of-jail-free cards, and citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kratistolies's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheistic Emperor Worship.

Kratistolies is ranked 21,645th in the world and 5th in The New Inquisition for Most Authoritarian, with 1.57 Stalins.
