The Greater Empire of Krospovia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Davidov Santamaninsky with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.017 billion Krospovians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while International Aid and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krospograd. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.7%.

The all-consuming Krospovian economy, worth 915 trillion Krospovian Rubles a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 130,398 Krospovian Rubles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 470,700 per year while the poor average 25,805, a ratio of 18.2 to 1.

Soldiers must key in their passwords every time they want to reload their weapons, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, male celebrity chefs are laughed at for their lack of manliness, and glassy-eyed Krospovian wives lifelessly chant "I love you" on command. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Krospovia's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Krospovian Catholicism.

Krospovia is ranked 103,295th in the world and 3,777th in Balder for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 809.73 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
