The Golden Empire of Kratistolies is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Primarch with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 16.26 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, 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 6,486 trillion Drachmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 398,894 Drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers, the number of judges has tripled in recent months, workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, and kids these days know how to throw a proper punch. 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 State Worship.

Kratistolies is ranked 1,181st in the world and 1st in The New Inquisition for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 31,809.46 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
