The Imperial Chiefdom of Krioval is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Imperial Chief Henrik with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 23.969 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 relatively small, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Southguard. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kriovalian economy, worth a remarkable 8,295 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 346,094 sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, a sledgehammer and a spray can are seen as the default tools of political debate, bizarre-looking creatures called 'gold dragondogs' dominate wildlife preserves, and political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm. 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 158,794th in the world and 32nd in Antarctic Oasis for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.22 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
