The Republic of Kroken is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Arne with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, humorless population of 7.468 billion Krokenians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neslandsvatn. The average income tax rate is 5.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Krokenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,607 trillion Trilqis a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 215,314 Trilqis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event, in musicals everybody's a little bit racist, foreign musicians that Arne dislikes are turned away at the border, and hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kroken's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kroken is ranked 170,919th in the world and 9,135th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 2.33 Obesity Rate.
