The United Socialist States of Krimera is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Viktor Kruschev with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, parental licensing program, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.035 billion Krimerans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kremaras. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Krimeran economy, worth a remarkable 2,522 trillion Marxes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 417,932 Marxes, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Krimeran Liberator", scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, the government considers it a sacred duty to video bikini-clad beach swimmers, and advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Krimera's national animal is the Black Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Krimera is ranked 120,626th in the world and 42nd in Novus Lucidum for Most Income Equality, scoring 18.39 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
