The Republic of Kricivk is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Seohyun Lee with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.539 billion Kricivkians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krivich. The average income tax rate is 80.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kricivkian economy, worth 620 trillion KRVKS 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 impressive 136,789 KRVKS, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll, acrimonious legal battles result during divorce proceedings, politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, and fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kricivk's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kricivk is ranked 150,694th in the world and 6,380th in the South Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 358.65 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
