Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Kratistolies is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Primarch with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, smutty television, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 10.827 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, Defense, and Law & Order. 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 3,488 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 322,243 Drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and the paparazzi publicize Royal scandals with the utmost delight. 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 177,821st in the world and 92nd in The New Inquisition for Most Devout, with 2.72 Prayers Per Hour.
