The Dominion of Kris Bryant is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Kris Bryant with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The devout population of 6.666 billion Kris Bryantians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chicago. The average income tax rate is 59.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Kris Bryantian economy, worth 731 trillion Pesos 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 a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. 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 impressive 109,690 Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Soldiers who shoot themselves in the foot are regarded as heroes, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Chicago Times is sold out, rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, and ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kris Bryant's national animal is the Spider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kris Bryant is ranked 232,545th in the world and 12,444th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.16 crimes per hour.
