The Resolve of Krualstiken is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ovai Illeraipe with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 9.354 billion Krualians 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 medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cwiskretan. The average income tax rate is 43.6%.

The thriving Krualian economy, worth 854 trillion Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 91,372 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Barbed wire entanglements and guard towers surround the Cwiskretan Natural History Museum, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, the government advises foreign diplomats to speak softly and carry a big bag of cash, and tombstones are ten feet high to accommodate the names of inhabitants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Krualstiken's national animal is the Working Class Citizen, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Krualstiken is ranked 72,836th in the world and 53rd in KAISERREICH for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 2,253.44 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
