The Czardom of Krukan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Vadik Venron with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.807 billion Krukanians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Social Policy and Spirituality not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gend'Ier. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Krukanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,081 trillion Juels a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 173,055 Juels, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,192,008 per year while the poor average 8,932, a ratio of 133 to 1.

Citizens are expected to be armed at all times, heart attacks are regarded as a coming of age ritual, belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace', and the nation has recently been attributed to the funding of terrorist organisations. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Krukan's national animal is the Krukanian Raptor, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Krukan is ranked 16,711th in the world and 2nd in Zentari for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
