The Imperial Chiefdom of Krioval is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Imperial Chief Henrik with a fair hand, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 27.255 billion Kriovallers are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Southguard. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Kriovalian economy, worth a remarkable 9,854 trillion sovereigns 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 361,561 sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, Southguard spends billions upgrading public transport, tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, and praying before a battle is a court-martial offence. Crime is totally unknown. Krioval's national animal is the gold dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Krioval is ranked 196th in the world and 1st in Antarctic Oasis for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 97.44 Workforce Participation Rate.
