The Empire of Kromerov is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Alfred der Groß von Courland with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.392 billion Kromerovians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taqorsburg. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Kromerovian economy, worth 134 trillion Hohs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 96,466 Hohs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Sausages are seldomly seen in the supermarket, rumor has it that the government was paid off by the mob to allow casinos to reopen, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, and small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kromerov's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Kromerov is ranked 218,094th in the world and 95th in Gay for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -11.51 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
