The Glorious and Serene Harmony of Kriov is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Kraceng Krumos with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 26.37 billion Kriovians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ekriovia. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kriovian economy, worth a remarkable 2,965 trillion krubors a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 112,470 krubors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Adults pretending to be teenage girls claim to have wholesome motives, royal mothers accustomed to baby-talk assure the troops "we gweatly wespect your service; yes, we do", the entire entry for Kriov in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', and the military is researching proton packs and PK-meters to combat "unseen enemy forces". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kriov's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kriov is ranked 249th in the world and 9th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 99.42 on the Human Development Index.
