The Republic of Kroken is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Arne with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and smutty television. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 14.271 billion Krokenians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neslandsvatn. The average income tax rate is 32.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Krokenian economy, worth a remarkable 3,570 trillion Trilqis a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 250,191 Trilqis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, hand-to-hand combat experience is udderly essential for all dairy ranchers, dealers go from pushing drugs to pushing up daisies, and ill and injured visitors in Kroken have to walk it off until they return home. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kroken's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kroken is ranked 258,105th in the world and 11,253rd in The North Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -56 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
